You should check your settings in Format|Option Inspector|Editing Options,
in particular Editable, Selectable and Structured Selection. On my PC under
Windows 98 a double click on a word selects that word, and a sequence of
rapid double clicks select word, phrase and the whole contents of the cell,
one after the other. Very useful for editing purposes.
