Auto-selecting words that include accents, umlauts,


#1

This is not a bug but an internationalization improvement. When editing text and using shortcuts like ctrl+b or ctrl+k in Checkvist, the word at cursor position gets selected. Which is convenient and works well for English, but in German, we also have ß and umlauts (üöä). And in other languages there are accents. Those characters won’t be selected. In terms of Unicode, the ‘letter’ category would include those (\p{L}).

Unfortunately, \p{L} is not available in Javascript. But I tried to make a workaround at least for Latin and Cyrillic characters, please test on https://beta.checkvist.com

Thank you, it works well for me. Minor remark: It doesn’t work for the capital letter sharp S, which is rather new and not very common yet: U+1E9E.
