      Make sure that your cursor is next to the first word of the text that you want to highlight and click with your right button (and hold it down) of your mouse and slowly move over the text in question.

        A common cause of this is that you are in “Extended” or “Add” mode.

        If you see “EXT” or “ADD” down on the status bar try hitting F8 key a couple
        of times.

        F8 will will toggle you in and out of Extended mode. SHIFT + F8 will put you
        in “ADD” mode.

        With the “ADD” mode you need to re-click the mouse. This is used to select
        non-contiguous cells and ranges without using the CTRL key.

        With the “EXT” mode you just click once and drag. All cells will be selected.

        If you are using a wheel-mouse tap the wheel a couple times.
