Working with multiple cursors


I’m missing the multiple cursors feature in the editor. In many apps it’s used with the option key.

Do you mean multiple selections? What kind of documents do you use?

I mean something like that:


This way, I can select beginning of all lines and add # to all of them. I generally use this in .md documents.

That is not a standard mechanism in text editing. You are referring to the behavior of very specific applications.

This should actually work in case of plain/rich text documents or Markdown documents just like in TextEdit by holding the Alt/Opt modifier key while dragging the mouse.

Multiple-selection, yes.
Multiple-replacement, no.

Exactly. I hoped this feature would add value to others.

Development will have to assess this, but thanks for the suggestion.
