RC2 - ([{' surround doesn't work with column selection
« on: November 03, 2014, 10:05:15 pm »
Not sure if this is a bug or an unimplemented extension of the new selection surround feature...
Repro: select a column of text, and type one of the surround characters (,[,{ etc. The text is deleted and replaced with the typed character on each line of the column selection. Select text on a single line and it works fine.

Use Shift+RButtonDown and drag to create multiple selections instead of creating a column selection.

OK, that worked. I like the new feature, but would really like to see it in column selections too. Multiple cursors/selections is a neat feature I'm finding more uses for, but don't really use that much. I use column selection really really often and would love the surround characters to 'just work' in that mode as well.
