Hi, thanks for your feedback! we just want to collect some detailed feedback for what exactly is annoying/not working for you? You can still select character by character even if the initial selection is whole word, check this out: http://feedback.xodo.com/knowledgebase/articles/927858-text-selection-highlight! Any feedback is highly appreciated! Thanks!Kerry Dustin supported this idea ·

I'm having exactly the same problem and it has totally ruined the programme for me. I would really like to be able to turn this off or I won't be able to use Xodo at all.
I use it to highlight cross stitch symbols in a PDF grid, where each symbol is a character in a distinct symbol font. However, there are no spaces as it's a completely full grid. So the selection can't find a word and does the full line of the chart. It is much too slow and fiddly to then drag the edges back. I would spent 90% of my time doing that and only 10% actually stitching.
Before the update, I could drag a stylus across the scattered symbols of a particular type on the page and highlight it. When I was done stitching, I could tap it again and change the colour of the highlighting to let me mark what was done. Then I could move on to the next symbol.
I've uploaded a screenshot to show this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rocalisa/27851065913/
Please let me be able to do this again. The programme is currently useless to me.
