      Sure is. From "Tips and How to" in the Help file:

      "In NoteTab Pro, double clicking on a word with the mouse selects it
      together with all blank spaces following it. If you only want the
      word selected, just hold down the Alt key while you double click on the word."

      What it doesn't say is that the Alt key press thing toggles between
      the two behaviors and that it's sticky. Notetab remembers you last
      choice, so if you always want the selection to be without the tailing
      space you only have to do this once.

      I've never understood why the default Windows behavior is to select a
      word including the tailing space. I'm sure there is a reason, but I
      fail to see it.
