Request: drag selected text


#1

If I get time between classes and work to make this myself I will definitely give it a shot. What I’m looking for is the possibility to drag the selected text with the mouse like many other editors.


Highlighting and moving text
#2

Otherwise known as “rectangular selection”. I’ll keep SublimeText around until Atom can do this.

Please implement!

Thanks

I think this topic is more about dragging the selected text to drop it somewhere else. Cut/paste via mouse.

Yep, the topic for vertical selection is over here:

This is different.


#5

Any news on this topic? Looking foward to it as well as the ability to drag with Ctrl pressed to clone the dragged text.

Besides the normal drag/drop it supports cut/copy/paste using the mouse and no keys, not even modifier keys.

This is brand new so please get me feedback on the design and of course report bugs.
