Any way to click to select an entire multi-line field?


Level 1

I'm designing a form that has several fields that allow users to enter in multiple lines of text.

If the user double-clicks on a word in the field, that word is selected.

If they triple-click, the line that the cursor is on gets selected (but not the other lines in the field).

Quadruple-clicking in the text field just places the cursor at that spot. If they quadruple-click outside of the text field, the entire page is selected.

It seems like there is no way to click in the field to select all of the contents of a text field that has multiple lines. Is that correct?

You can right-click and select "select all" or use the Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut.
