Summary0023313: Font Editor: Cannot unselect font ranges - inconsistent with most other selections in the UI
DescriptionIn most lists in the UI, you can select things by clicking on them, and then deselect them by clicking on empty space in the list. However, you cannot do this in the Font Editor, and once you have a font range selected there is no way to unselect it.

This is inconsistent with the way the rest of the UI works, and may also be annoying in case you accidently press Delete, as you cannot unselect the font range to mitigate the risk.

Other lists in the rest of the UI that let you deselect items in this way include:
* All lists in the Extension Editor
* Events in the Object Editor
* Layers, Instances, and Intstance Creation Order in the Room Editor
* Points in the Path Editor
* Points in the Physics Collision Shape Editor
Steps To Reproduce1: Add a font, and open the Font Editor
2: Note no ranges are higlighted
3: Click on the default font range
4: Click in the empty space below the list, and note it does not get unselected

Try similar steps with most other lists from the list above, and note that they let you deselect items
