An option when pasting to convert LINE to CHAR (see my previous post about Line Insert Style).

Re: paste-special - Multiple Cursors
« Reply #1 on: April 27, 2017, 06:13:50 pm »
paste-special would also be really useful with multiple cursors.

Currently, if I copy two lines of text, then create two cursors and paste, both lines of text get pasted at both cursors -- pasting a total of 4 lines.

This is rarely what I want.
Instead I should be able to tell Slick to paste one line of text at each cursor - even if the number of lines don't match exactly.

Re: paste-special - Block

Paste-special for a block selection would allow be to paste a block selection as if it was a normal multiline selection.

Currently paste of a block will overlap existing text instead of inserting the right number of lines.
