           Summary: Selection with shift key and left mouse botton doesn't
                    work anymore
           Product: konsole
           Version: 2.2.3
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: konsole-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: nuno at nunosilva.com

Version:           2.2.3 (using KDE 4.2.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

In earlier versions of konsole you can select text with the left mouse botton.
This still works. In earlier version you could have the SHIFT key pressed while
doing this. In konsole 2.2.3 from KDE 4.2.4 (kubuntu packages for 64bit jaunty)
this doesn't work anymore.

Why is this important? Because selecting text in applications that support the
mouse inside "TERM=xterm" terminals (like midnight commander) is now
impossible. Before you could just press SHIFT and select away.

Even with only bash and simple text, now it's impossible to do ctrl-shift-alt
and left mouse "rectangular selections" (for selecting from position 1,1 to 2,2
without selecting all of row 1).

I use(d) this features every day and they are some of the things that make
konsole the best terminal emulator there is! Needless to say, I updated today
from kde 4.2.2 to 4.2.4 and I'm thinking about 4.2.2 again just because of

If you need more input or anything at all don't think twice, just ask.
