selectFldWithFirstOrLastChar (Select Field When First or Last Character Is Selected)
This element specifies whether applications should automatically select the entire contents of a field in a WordprocessingML document when the first or last character is selected.

compat (Part 1, §188.8.131.52)
This element’s content model is defined by the common boolean property definition in Part 1, §17.17.4.
