Click & drag intermittently doesn't select text

2.0 (9803):

selecting text:

click-drag to select text:

intermittently doesn’t select text:

that text would be selected:

Repro: click in some text & drag sometimes text becomes selected, sometimes it doesn’t.

You may need to try a couple of times. It seems entirely random, maybe 30-40% of the time. There don’t seem to be any particular conditions that make it happen.


thanks for reporting this. Can please tell me which macOS release you are currently running? Eventually, can you also produce a short video of this bug?

Best Regards.

False alarm. It was being caused by a dictionary popup. It’s turned off now in trackpad prefs → Lookk up and data collectors.
