Select attribute content

Sat Sep 16, 2017 4:50 am

Low-level request: it would be nice if hitting ctrl+shift+alt+C for select content worked not just when the cursor is in a text node, but also when it is within an attribute value, to select everything between the quotation marks. Not sure if that's feasible, but it would be a nice convenience.

We actually wanted to make some similar changes to the Select parent action. I will add your feedback to that opened issue.
For example if you are inside an attribute value, you use the "Select parent" action and the entire value is selected, you press it again and the entire attribute (name + value) is selected, you press it again and then the entire element is selected.
Right now you can triple click using the mouse to select an entire attribute value's contents.
