Stop automatically highlighting whole words when I highlight part, like in Word
In Word, I can set my editing options so I don't include the whole word when highlighting part of the word, or include the carriage return when highlighting a line. I'd like to be able to do the same when editing an email in Outlook.
What an infuriating feature.
Stop grabby baby handing my every move and just allow me to work.
Your 'help' is an impediment!

I don't understand why this is still a problem! I get the very unsettling sense that Microsoft no longer cares about issues like this now that everyone is subscribing to Office 365, so Microsoft no longer has to fix problems to encourage us to upgrade to the latest version. Extremely disappointed that years later this stupid issue still hasn't been fixed.
Is it possible to turn off “select whole word?” When I select one letter of a word, a space, and part of a second word the selection will expand to cover both words - I would like to turn this off.
