I've run into a strange selection bug in 9.6.6. In some instances, when a line of text ends with a quotation mark (”), the quotation mark cannot be selected with the mouse. It doesn't seem to matter which text is displayed. So far I've tried this with NAS95S and ESV.

For example, if I display the book of Matthew, then try to highlight all of Matthew 4:17, I can select everything except the final quotation mark if I don't select the next line. Moving the mouse down to select the next line will select the quotation mark, as well as the returns for next line. If I select just Matthew 4:17 with mouse (which excludes the quotation mark) I can then hold down the shift key and hit the right arrow key to select the final quotation mark.

Interestingly, if I move up one verse to Matthew 4:16—which also ends with a quotation mark—selecting the entire verse including the final quotation mark with the mouse works just fine. I think the red letter text may have something to do with this.
