Most operations in any text editor require making selections. Atom has a unique way to let you do this.
- [Narrator] Atom gives you all the traditional ways…of making selections and documents as well as…some really interesting ways of selecting things.…So, traditionally on any editor,…if you do things like double click on a word,…it's going to select that entire word…and if you triple click, it'll select a line,…triple click, and then you can move up and down.…It selects a line at a time or of course,…you can do things like use the Shift key to go up and down.…Now, there's a bunch of other…selection options that you can use.…
Most of them are in this, so you can see for example,…'Add Selection Above' is right here, 'Add Selection Below',…and there's lots of other ones right here.…There are some other ones in the command pallet.…If you just type in 'Select', you can see…some of the same keyboard shortcuts,…but I'm going to show you some of the ones…that I think are the best and also…the ones that I use the most.…So, the one that I really love is called Multiple Cursors…and what it allows you to do is make a selection.…
