Right Clicking Highlighted Text Modifies Highlighted Selection in Favor of Spellcheck?

Looked around for a solution, but can’t find anything about this. I have a reoccurring problem where I’d like to right click a line to copy it or doing something else in the context menu, but upon doing so my selection changes to a subset of the words or even symbols/whitespace of the selection.
For example, if I highlight the entire line:
ssh myuser@myserver “my command”
and I right click on top of ssh as part of the highlight, notepad++ will change the highlight to just ssh and there will be options in the context menu change ssh into an english word or add “ssh” to the dictionary. I keep expecting the entire line to remain highlighted so that I can operate on with the context menu.
There must be some option or preference I have set that’s foobaring me. Any ideas are appreciated!

I finally figured out my issue. Apparently I had a plugin (builtin I assume) “DSpellCheck” with an option enabled “Spell Check Document Automatically”
Going to Plugins->DSpellCheck and unchecking that option stopped this behavior. Cheers!

You may have this plugin, but it isn’t built into Notepad++.
I think in “ancient times” it might have been a built-in one, though.
