Hi Ferdinand, 

You made a valid point. However, because of the restriction of the XML editor used for the feature, it is not possible to change the double-clicking behavior. 

Best regards,

Hi Chris,

A filepath is in the property and i doubleclick.
It is only highlighted up to the dot and backslash.

A built-in image is in the property.
It is only highlighted up to the exclamation mark

Hi Ferdinand;

   Thank you for the feedback and all your efforts in testing the PB2019R2 beta!

   I will now pass this observation on to the Engineering Team. In the mean-time, some screen captures and/or a simple PB example App could be most helpful in narrowing in on this behaviour.

Regards ... Chris

If you doubleclick into a property the whole value is never highlighted.
It highlights only to the first ! or \.

That caues a problem with the image selector.
You can not doubleclick on the property and open the image selector to change a picture.
You have to either remove the wrong characters after the insert, highlight the whole property by hand or clear it before.

That is no how the help describes it.

Insert images:

1) Place the cursor in the value of the PictureName property, or double click to select the value of the PictureName property, and then click the Select Images button from the toolbar.

2) In the Select Images dialog, select to use a custom image or a built-in image. The selected image name will be inserted into the value of the PictureName property.
