Select Line with Mouse Click

In the Microsoft style, allow a line to be selected by clicking once in the left margin of the code window. Allow dragging to select multiple lines.

To make this work, a region of the left margin must accept the click. To indicate when the editor will accept such a click, change the mouse pointer from left pointing to right pointing, also a Microsoft convention.

Thanks, we will look into the technical aspects of this request and depending on the complexity see if it can be implemented. I think the breakpoints that are also set by clicking on the left margin will cause some issues but maybe there is a way.
