Ctrl+Click on a *definition* no longer highlights the token (423)

I love Ctrl+Click but its behaviour as subtely changed recently.

In previous builds Ctrl+Click on a definition (E.G. a parameter) selected the entire token. I found this to be a useful way of easily highlighting the entire token.

In build 423 R# attempts to jump to the definition, which is a no-op as I am clicking on the definition.

The only observable side effect is the line that is clicked scrolls to the centre of the screen. Interesting, but not as useful.

Please consider bringing back selecting the token on Ctrl+Click if the token is the definition.

Hello James,

It is already planned to be fixed, see http://jetbrains.net/jira/browse/RSRP-39674

I always have to immediately turn this feature off, because it's so
annoying.

I do a lot of 'drag-and-drop' text editing, including ctrl-drag copying of
selections. With this feature turned on, I can no longer copy selected text
by holding down ctrl and dragging it to the new location, as it keeps trying
to jump to the defintion. VERY annoying.

I don't suppose it would be possible to have this 'jump' feature disabled if
the text is pre-selected, thus enabling both functions to sort of live and
play well together?

Dragging then pressing ctrl will solve that problem
