Most of the work you do in any text editor is changing existing text. Take a look at some of the features that make that possible within Atom.
- In addition to changing lines,…there's a couple of ways to modify text element.…So, for example, you can convert an element…to a comment really quickly,…just by selecting any line of text,…and then hitting Command, forward slash.…Now, it is context sensitive,…so if we go to a Java Script file,…and I select this line right here,…hitting Command, forward slash,…and that's Control, forward slash on a PC,…converts it to the proper type of comments right here.…
Here's a CSS file, so let's grab this animated thing here,…and hit Control, forward slash,…and you can see that, in every case,…it converted the comment to the right style…of comment for that language.…So that's pretty useful.…Now, there's a couple of other options.…I'm not really sure I use these very much,…but they're all in the Edit menu, underneath Text.…You can convert things to upper case or lower case,…and then there's these weird options to delete things…to sort of the end of the word,…previous boundary, and next boundary.…
I'm not sure why you would use this.…
