    In Eclipse, when you hold the Ctrl key and press the Left or Right arrow to highlight variables/text, the selection stops at Upper Case characters.

    For example with:
    myLongVariable

    The cursor is initially at the start.
    Press Ctrl+Right and it will highlight "my".
    Press Ctrl+Right again and it with highlight "myLong"
    Press Ctrl+Right again and it with highlight "myLongVariable"

    This feature is more of a pain than being useful.
    How do you change it so Ctrl+Right highlights the complete word like in other editors?

    I know you can use Alt+Shift+Arrow but I find it awkward.
