This is something I never used in any of my previous IDEs like Dreamweaver but multi-cursors are something that you will grow to love in their functionality. After a couple uses you will question how you ever got on without them.
So here is a less then 3 minute video that will show you how easy and powerful multi-cursors are.
To enable multi-selection, you have several options:
- Press Ctrl + click (Mac is Cmd + click) in each region where you require a cursor.
- this adds cursors wherever you click
- Select a block of lines and then press Shift + Command + L.
- adds cursors after your highlighted block
- use the right arrow on keyboard to start typing after highlighted block (and not erase what is highlighted)
- Place the cursor over a particular word, and press Control/Command + D repeatedly
- to select additional occurrences of that word.
- Alt+F3 on Windows, (or Ctrl+Command+G on the Mac)
- adds an additional cursor at all occurrences of a word by typing Amazing!!
- my personal favorite
If you know of additional ways to use mutli-cursors, please share in the comments below.
