Disable Automatic Selection of Entire Words When Clicking and Dragging

When clicking and dragging to select text, Storyline automatically selects entire words if more than one word is included in the selection. Programs such as Microsoft Word allow this to be turned off.

Is there any way to turn this off in Storyline, so that a click and drag over multiple words can start and/or stop within words rather than automatically selecting entire words.

There should be an option to turn this off because it is very annoying. It does not really work well from either direction. When you get halfway through a second word, it selects the first word. Trying to not select the apostrophe in the second sentence is almost impossible and I have to move the mouse really slowly and try several times.
