Why does Mac software break in strange ways? For years Macmail would let me highlight text from the top of the message to anywhere below, whether one screen below or 3, 4, 5 whatever. As the cursor dropped deeper into the file, the file scrolled to keep highlighting the additional material.
Then one day for no evident reason highlight scrolling stopped. Suddenly you could highlight text to the bottom of the screen but no further. The scrolling function broke when highlighting is in use.
Without highlighting, you can move the cursor as low in the message as you like, and highlight scrolling back UP. Strange.
Is there a fix?
