You don't have to click anywhere else. You can then reselect. I can
see where allowing the two things you mention to be toggled preferences
might be nice as we all work different, but if you do it as I suggest
(alt + double click for the word without trailing space and click /
release/ reselect to avoid drag and drop) it will soon become second
nature to you.
Anyway, I learned two things I didn't know before as a result of your
question, so thanks for asking it!
