Re: Selecting in notepad

David Goldfield


I’m not able to reproduce this issue. Using NVDA 2022.1 beta 3. Using Windows 11 version 21 H2, Build 22000.556.

Selecting text with shift-ctrl-right arrow in Notepad selects text word by word and reads the selected text as expected.

What is unexpected is that when I type several words and then press enter the line that I just typed is repeated. As an example, if I type “This is a test” pressing enter causes NVDA to read back “this is a test.”

I’m not sure if this is an issue with the beta or if it occurs with 2021.3.5.
