Has multiple selection with the ALT key changed in PHPStorm 9?
I'm constantly selecting multiple lines with ALT, but the location of the cursor I just came from keeps seeming to be remembered, and when I start typing, text appears there as well.
It also happens if I click in the place I want to adjust, then ALT+select downwards. I then get TWO sets of words at the first cursor location:
Step 1: ALT + click once, then ALT + select downwards
Step 2: type "HELLO"
It's very frustrating.
I realise there must need to be a logical decision about what happens when ALT is pressed - is it an addition, or a start, but I think the logic for when holding down ALT should be:
- if no previous multi-selection - move the cursor and clear previous position
- if previous multi-selection - move the cursor and keep previous selection
I'm hoping this is a bug and has been fixed already.
Or if not, make it a preference!
