Keep cursor selected until I hit escape


#1

When you click on the div tag(or other) it will highlight the matching pair on the other side. If you move the cursor to another location it loses it.

What I am wondering is how can I create a package that will allow me to hit a key + click and it will leave the div tag and its matching tag selected until I hit escape or a hotkey?

You can create multiple cursors by using Cmd+Click on the Mac or Ctrl+Click on other platforms. Pressing Esc clears all but the most recent cursor or selection.

You can find out more about these kinds of things in the Atom Flight Manual:
