Hello. In a document long enough to cause part of it to scroll out of view, when selecting text and moving into the non-viewable part, it is not scrolled into view and selected. So, only the viewable part is selectable. Is there a way to get this to work? This behavior can be seen in the demo at http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#RichTextBox/SyntaxHighlight . Scroll to bottom and then try to select text up to the top. If selecting all text, Ctrl-a does work but what if a user wants to only select a section with part of it being out of view?

Cheers,

Dave

Hello Dave C,

I am afraid currently this behavior is not supported in this view. We are working to improve it as we speak and it will work as expected very soon. In the meanwhile you can select bigger chunks of a document using the keyboard or shift+mouse click. Let us know if we can help with anything else.

Kind regards,
