Slectet multi words by click and drag

Slectet multi words by click and drag

Postby STHayden on Mon Oct 19, 2009 2:33 pm

This is more of a nice to have. but if I double click a word to select it. It would be nice if I could drag the mouse and then add things to the selection by whole word instead of character by character.

just a thought

As in, double click, then start dragging before releasing the mouse button for the second time? Sounds handy.

I consider this a "must have." Mainly, since it's standard text editing behavior in pretty much every other app. Even Notepad! Heck, it even works on this web page in every browser I know. It's so ingrained into my muscle memory that I'm constantly trying to do it in Sublime.

(For searchability, let me restate the original request. Double-click-and-hold on a word should both select the word and allow you to extend to the selection to other words by dragging while the button is still held down.)

Thanks.

I was wondering if you could also add the ability to triple-click to select an entire line (and then drag to select multiple lines).
Thanks!

Thanks for adding the triple-click thing! I am happily triple-click-dragging.
