When the cursor is outside the left margin and aligned with a text line, change the cursor to a slanted arrow and allow selecting of the entire line with a mouse click. See this feature in MS Word for guidance.
User Profile Reset: No
I don't see the use case. If cursor is outside the left margin you can select
- a word (two clicks)
- a sentence (three clicks)
- a paragraph (four clicks)
Use cases will be very seldom, where you select a line, that is not a sentence or a paragraph.
Wpuld be helpful, if you can give some examples in a document.

As Dieter said, WF. It's not just the cursor also the behavior would have to change. The rightwards pointing arrow is true for table, however. Please reopen if we misunderstood your request, Bob.
