Select whole words automatically

When this option is on, dragging the mouse to select text causes Atlantis to automatically selects entire words.

When this option is off, individual characters are selected instead.

Note that you can still select individual characters even when this option is on: as soon as Atlantis selects an entire word, back the mouse up a bit, and keep dragging the mouse to select that word partially.

Anticipatory scrolling

This option controls how the document window is scrolled when you press the cursor keys: , , , , Home, End.

When this option is on, and the paragraph line with the cursor is not currently in view, Atlantis scrolls the document window to bring the current paragraph line and a few more neighboring lines below or above it into view. So actual scrolling is done less often, but is more discrete.

When this option is off, only the current paragraph line is brought into view.

Format without selection

When this option is on, and there is no selection in the document, the font formatting operations (bold, italic, etc) are applied to the current document word. For example, you can press CtrlB to apply bold to the entire word at the current cursor position without selecting it first.

When this option is off, and there is no selection in the document, the font formatting operations do not get immediately applied to the document text. You need to type some text at this cursor position for the new font formatting to be automatically applied to that new text.

Treat Internet addresses as words

When this option is on, Atlantis treats Internet addresses (emails, Web addresses, etc) in your document as words. For example, when this option is on, you can select an Internet address by double-clicking it. Or you can skip over an Internet address by pressing Ctrl or Ctrl.

When this option is off, Internet addresses are in most cases treated as a series of separate words.
