For power users that really want to get the most of out of the editor, there are a couple extra features that can really boost your productivity.
Generally when you are editing a card, you only need one cursor. Put some content in, take some content out – easy. But sometimes there are situations where the ability to have multiple cursors is actually very useful. There are three ways to turn your single cursor into multiple:
holding down CTRL (CMD on macOS) while clicking somewhere in the card, which creates an additional cursor at the clicked spot
pressing CMD/CTRL+D while you have some content selected – this selects the next occurrence of the selected content, e.g. if you have the word "day" selected, pressing CMD+D (on a mac) will select the next occurrence of "day" in addition to the already selected fragment. Pressing CMD+D again will select the 3rd occurrence of "day" and so on.
pressing CMD/CTRL+SHIFT+D while you have some content selected – this selects all occurrences of the selected content in one go.
As an example of when this might be useful, let's say you have a list of 10 items which is just a basic list (using "- "), but now you've realized that actually you want this list to be a checklist (using "- [ ] "). This is where multi-cursor can come in very handy. You can select the first list mark "- ", press CMD+SHIFT+D, then edit all the other occurrences at once. Here is a gif to illustrate exactly this in practice:
And when you want to collapse your cursor from many back down to one, just press ESC.
Moving/Duplicating/Editing Lines with Shortcuts
Sometimes when you're editing a card you want to quickly move entire lines around, duplicate them, delete them, or various other fun things! For example if you're working on a list of animals like the one above and you want to change their order to indicate priority. Luckily in the Super Editor there are shortcuts for all these things!
Alt + ArrowUp – Move current line up
Alt + ArrowDown – Move current line down
Shift + Alt + ArrowUp – Copy current line above
Shift + Alt + ArrowDown – Copy current line down
Alt + L (Ctrl + L on macOS) – Select Line
Shift + Ctrl + K (Shift + Cmd + K on macOS) – Delete line
Watch as the list above gets edited with these shortcuts.
