    Question double click to select, but it selects a bit more than needed


    I think there must be an easy answer for this. I double click something, it will automatically choose regular words, as well as semicolon, etc, say, it selects aaaa:. But I just want it to select aaaa. How can I possibly achieve that? Thanks,

    No, just the usual linux functionality when using terminal.

    $spacer_close

    In the bash terminal select Edit -> Preferences and then advanced. You can choose the "end of word" characters in there.

    If you prefer to edit files directly, have a look at ~/.config/Terminal/terminalrc which may or may not exist before you update the preferences in the GUI.
