Hi Arthur,
One can definitely select only one residue in the sequence — just drag a very short distance.  Maybe it will be easier if you increase the font size in the Sequence dialog (in Sequence window menu, choose Preferences… Appearance, then in the "Single sequences" section on the right increase the point size, press return).
I hope this helps,

I  then select the amino acid I do not wish to highlight together with the amino acid on the other side of the one that  I am interested in. I can that way eventually deselect and not highlight the amino acid I am not interested  in.
