I work with GUIDs quite frequently and I often have to copy and paste them from one application to another. Unfortunately the default behavior of just about every application is that when you double click a piece of text, certain symbols(such as the hyphen in my case) stop the highlighting behavior. So if I have the following GUID:
and I double click the first part, only "5d541fc7" is highlighted. Does anyone know of a way to double click a GUID and have the entire GUID highlighted in NotePad++? I was thinking that maybe there was an option to control this behavior, but I have not been able to find it. FYI I have tried using regular expressions to locate each GUID in my NotePad++ document, however it would be far easier for me to be able to double click it. Thanks.
