Multi-cursors

Posted by Kyle Hankinson September 23, 2020


SQLPro supports multiple cursors. This allows a users to perform certain actions with fewer keystrokes.

There are two different ways available to select multiple cursors. The first, is by holding Option while dragging the mouse cursor up or down between lines.

The second method is by using the keyboard shortcut Command + Option along with ↑/↓.

Once multiple cursors have been selected, the following keyboard shortcuts are available.

  • ←/→ to move text selection to the left and right one character.
  • Option + ←/→ to move text selection left/right one word.
  • Shift + ←/→ to move and highlight text selection to the left and right.
  • Shift + Option + ←/→ to move and highlight text selection left/right one word.
  • Cmd + Delete to delete from the curors beginnings to the end of the next word.
  • Option + Delete to delete from the curors beginnings to the end of the line.

Any feedback or issues with multi-cursor support should be added to the origional request ticket.
