Title: [Feature Request] Finish Multiline Edit
Post by: Wheel on September 13, 2019, 02:31:06 pm
Multiline edit is where you hold down the <ALT> keyboard button and mouse (left click) drag vertically and can insert, delete, cut, copy, paste a rectangular selection across multiple lines. From using the Aug 1st 2019 svn 11825 x64 bit version it seems all but the insert is incomplete. When you try to insert text using this method only the last selected line (highlighted line) gets the input, the vertical (multiline) select is lost when you enter any text.

Are you sure you have "Enable typing (and deleting) in multiple selections" enabled?

If you have please describe the problem with more details. Exact keypresses and state before/after would be helpful.

Apologies, I assumed there wouldn't be a need for an option and that it would be on by default. Thanks for telling me about it. I'm a bit surprised that delete, cut and paste worked without the option being enabled though.

Settings -> Editor -> Selections
Tickboxes:
    Allow multiple selections
        Enable typing (and deleting) in multiple selections simultaneously

Hi buddy, did you get any permanent way out for this?
