Minimap extends selection
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:38:54 pm »
With Move Cursor On Click enabled..

Use the mouse to drag select a few lines of text near the top of the buffer.
Now, click near the bottom of the minimap -- the selection is extended from where you started the click-drag selection. This behaves similar to shift+click in how the selection is extended.


This doesn't happen when you use shift+Arrows to select some text, just a mouse drag select.


NICE: Use shift+arrows to select text.
Hold SHIFT and click in the minimap -- the selection is extended - seems like this is good.

Hmm..this wasn’t intentional. Not sure if this is good. We will look into this.

Fixed for next beta.

If you want to extend the selection, hold down Shift (Shift+Click in the minimap). Otherwise, this operates as if you clicked in the edit window (selection goes away except for locked selection).

This makes a lot more sense.

Shift+Click goes to beginning of line - make more sense when extending selection.
Click goes to first non blank which seems more useful than placing the cursor in column 1.

Multiple cursors are canceled.

Thanks for noticing this.
