This plugin makes Sublime’s multi-select even more awesome

Multi-select is one of Sublime’s killer features, so I was pretty excited this week when I stumbled on a new plugin that adds some nice refinements.

MultiEditUtils is a Sublime Text 3 plugin that allows you to:

  • Jump your cursors to the end of the selections, even if you made the selection “backwards” (I do this all the time)
  • Cycle through all instances of a selection–convenient when you’d like to review a list of selections in a long file that doesn’t fit on one screen
  • Select a line of text and split it into characters or words, then insert separators (this one is amazing)

MultiEditUtils is available in Package Control.

Thanks for mentioning my plugin! I’m glad you like it.
I have a kind suggestion (I hope, this is a useful tip for your future blog posts).
If you would link to the plugin’s readme (on github or wbond), your readers can find additional information way easier (for example, the animated feature-GIFs in which a lot of developer put effort in ;)).

    I agree with Philipp’s comment. First thing I looked for was a github link to check all the features + docs.

    Love your site and newsletters by the way. Keep up the good work. 🙂

      Thanks, Bruno! I’ll make that change.
