[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] selectFldWithFirstOrLastChar (Select Field When First or Last Character Is Selected)

This element specifies whether applications should automatically select the entire contents of a field in a WordprocessingML document when the first or last character is selected.

Typically, users can select any character individually within the result of a field in the document. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that selecting the first or last character of that field result shall automatically result in the selection of the entire field.

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document which contains the following (with a field marked in gray shading):


The default presentation would allow the first character of that field to be selected:


However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

<w:selectFldWithFirstOrLastChar />

Then that selection would automatically result in the entire field being selected, resulting in the following:


end example]
