First off, not a big deal and I know the work around. Just wanted to put this out there, see if it is known, and hope it'll be fixed in RM8.

 

Been working through citations, media attachments, renaming, etc. Just normal stuff. What I have noticed is this...

 

If I hover the mouse over a line where all the words are not shown initially, the line beneath the hover will turn yellow and the line will expand where I can see the entire line and all the words. This is fantastic. Love the way that works.

 

Now if I want to SELECT that line, I cannot while the yellow expansion exists.

 

I have to leave my mouse pointer right over the expansion, and after a few seconds, the expansion will disappear. I can then select the line to do whatever I need to do. That is my workaround....the wait.

 

Like I stated, it's not a big deal, but it seems I should be able to select the line at anytime, without waiting for the expansion to disappear. Guess my thought is the selection should override the expansion, if the user clicks on the mouse for selection.

 

Thanks for letting me chip in my $0.02
