In Beta 2, try this:


Using the mouse, select a block of text.
Run convert_to_multiple_cursors
Now you have several cursors.
Without pressing ESC, run [/size]convert_to_multiple_cursors again.
Now, you have a single cursor.
Press ESC.
Expect: Should be on the Slick command line.
Actual: Apparently nothing, but I bet it cleared multi-cursor mode - even though there was just a single cursor.
Q: How does "ESC" terminate multi cursors?
Is this a special key binding?
If I bind some other key to cmdline_toggle, it toggles the cmdline without clearing multi-cursor mode.
Can we change which key clears multi-cursors?

This is not configurable yet. For simplicity, ESC cancel multiple cursors/selections. You can click with the mouse to get to the command line.

..or bind 'cmdline-toggle' to an alternate key for special cases like that (as I did)
