Keystroke for contracting selection?

Keystroke for contracting selection?

Postby Jay Levitt on Mon Nov 21, 2011 1:54 pm

The scope, indentation and block-based selection tools are incredible. But sometimes I want to remove the outer lines from the selection. Is there an inverse to "add previous/next line"?

Not as such, but if the reason you want to contract is because you've just expanded the selection too much (as commonly happens with ctrl+d / cmd+d), then you can use soft undo (ctrl+u / cmd+u) to go back to the previous selection state.

I have never needed to add lines in both directions from the starting point, it would make more sense if add/remove lines behaves like shift+arrows selection — if you start adding down, then moving down adds and moving up removes lines; if you start adding up, moving up adds and moving down removes lines.
