Why does the highlighted word , the highlight disappear with one click? How to make the highlight stay fixed until the next word is highlighted?

Works great! Could you tell me how I can leave the word that I originally marked highlighted? I need the original word to remain highlighted as a marker after I deselect it with the cursor. How to get this behavior?

the problem with this (a lot of people want it..) is that you'd need a way to remove the highlighted word as well, currently I'd recommend recording a gate key, in which case it will stay highlighted until you use the gate key again and click, but that takes away from the immediate convenience of just selecting a word
