Multi-line editing

Post by jamie » Fri Mar 10, 2017 1:02 pm

Disappointed that I can't edit multiple lines at once - it's such a useful feature and I sometimes end up copying text into a different editor, making the changes, then pasting back.

Example:

Code: Select all

blah blah
blah blah
blah blah
If I could indicate that all three lines needed editing, I could put the cursor at the start of just one of the lines and type <p> and get:

Code: Select all


<p>blah blah
<p>blah blah
<p>blah blah

Hello Jamie,

Starting from 18.0, the stand-alone oXygen has a rectangular selection feature, and it seems to me that it can prove to be helpful to you.

You can find some information at the following links:
- https://www.oxygenxml.com/demo/Rectangu ... ction.html
- https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... Cselection

If you are using a stand-alone oXygen, please let us know if this is sufficient for you. If it's not sufficient, please explain to us your use case in more details.

All the best wishes,
Sorin Carbunaru
