I’m exploring the use of Atom as a replacement for Notepad++ - I like what I’ve experienced with it so far. One particular feature set that I’ve been trying to find some similarity from N++ to Atom is a “Find / Copy line” function.
Every so often, I’ll be editing configuration files for systems/network gear and I need to edit certain swaths of text.
In N++, I’d typically:
-) Open the config file in N++
-) Run a Find for a certain portion of text
-) Bookmark all lines that were found that contained that portion of text
-) Copy all bookmarked lines
-) Paste all bookmarked lines into a new file
This way, I’d be able to just focus on editing those specific components of the config that I was interested in.
I understand that there may not be a 1:1 similar feature/function in Atom - are there any suggestions as to how to perform this kind of focused editing in Atom instead?
