IMHO, selecting one line is never needed in typesetting. I offer the next shortcuts:

double click -- selects a word

shift + double click -- selects a word and any trailing character (dots, commas, colons, semicolons, etc...)

triple click -- selects current paragraph.

ctrl + double click -- selects text with the same attributes (size, bold, underline, italic, color, etc...) I.e. all text to left and to right from current with all the same text attributes.

ctrl + triple click -- selects all _independent_ paragraphs that have the same paragraph style (if I want to change attributes for all subheads, for example, but don't want changing attributes of style).

shift + triple click -- selects all _independent_ text that has the same character style.

ctrl + shift + select by mouse -- begin the new _independent_ selection chain.
