Ctrl + Mouse click selection in editor

Post by peter_mclean@dodo.com.au » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:25 am

I use the Notepad++ editor "Ctrl + mouse click selection" to selectively select numerous instances of text in the editor and then for example, convert all the instances of the text to upper or lower case. This is done by holding the Ctrl key down, selecting the first instance of text, then whilst still holding the ctrl key down, selecting the next instance of text, and so on. Then I can apply the upper or lower case change to all instances of the text that are selected. Is it possible to provide this feature in the next release of the Primalscript editor?

There are no plans to add multiple selection at this point. Seems find and replace is an easy substitute for this.

Thanks Alex. However find and replace will only replace instances of the same text that is nominated in the find ("Find What"). I am wishing to alter multiple instances of different test string selections e.g. convert FRED, BILL TOM and HARRY to lower case in one fowl swoop. If I use find and replace to do this it will take 4 fowl swoops. Nonetheless I accept your decision not to add the feature. :-)
