I cannot find a friendly way to select text across different linked text frames.

This is what I try (Computer is on Windows 7) :

- click in first frame and keep button pressed
- drag to 2nd frame (linked)
- "drop" (unclick) at the desired end point in frame 2
-> the selection stops at where it was last before going to 2nd frame

- Click in first frame (and release button)
- Shift click again in first (same) frame (and release button)
- selection extends as desired... but this is all in ONE frame

- Click in first frame (and release button)
- shift click in 2nd frame (linked)
-> selection stops where expected in 2nd frame but starts at the begining of the 2nd frame aswell, instead of startint 
at the first click's place in first frame

Is there a chance to have some developper want to use linked text frames and fix this bug ?

Or is there some other way to proceed so as to select text across linked text frames ?
