Multi select with command D (osx) not working


Hello, up until recently I was able to use command D to select multi lines. Suddenly I am no longer able to do this I see the following message in the top right corner of Atom

Can’t Navigate to (name of variable here)

Does anyone know how to fix this?


Can you reproduce the problem in Safe Mode? To launch Safe Mode:

  1. Completely exit all instances of Atom
  2. Launch Atom with the command atom --safe


I have the same problem with @cmitides89 even in safe mode.
I appreciate any help.


Have you tried using the Keybinding Resolver (Cmd+. on OS X and Ctrl+. on other platforms)? It will show you what key Atom saw you press and the command that was triggered because of it.


Thank you for your advice

I have tried before but the Keybinding Resolver just only can’t resolver the (Cmd + d)

I have also tried to add the keymap.cson but no luck

  'cmd-d': 'find-and-replace:select-next'

Finally, I have just changed the key from ( cmd-d ) to ( cmd-i ),…um… it works. but…:cry:

Sorry for my english.


So what happens when you press Cmd+D?


I found the problem.
I installed BetterTouchTool and accidentally added the hotkey (cmd-d) to do something else.
This is all my fault.
I’m sorry to have wasted your time.


You didn’t waste our time. I’m glad that we helped get things figured out :grinning:
