    It's a bug.
    Fix: Add the following line in Form_Load.
    RichTextBox1.AutoWordSelection = False

    Hi,

    You can try this:

    vb.net Code:
    1. Private Sub rtxtEditor_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles rtxtEditor.SelectionChanged
    2.         Dim bUpdating As Boolean = False
    3.         'Set flag for bypassing
    4.         bUpdating = True
    5.  
    6.     End Sub

    rtxtEditor is your Richtextbox
    Wkr,
