Selecting text

When I select more than one word to make a hyperlink, a space after the last word is also selected. If I select more then one word, each word aster that is selected as soon as the first letter is.
To avoid this, I have to let it happen and then shorten the selection so the space is not selected. Can I change this default selecting of the space and the way that multiple words are selected?

I think this is Windows behaviour. I've seen this elsewhere

The text editor used by WWB is the standard Windows functionality, so I have no control over this behavior.

Thanks. I had noticed it before as the only program that I have here that shows this behaviour is Windows Wordpad. All 5 of the other word processing/text editors I checked (Notepad, Notepad ++, LibreOffice, Softmaker Textmaker and Google Docs) do not.

At least I can work around it easily.

Have a great week,
