paste in column mode possible?
Is paste in column mode possible?
I found a way to write text (after marking the vertical line with alt+left mouse button),
but how can I paste text previously copied in the clipboard there?
thanks in advance
(but obviously there is more to the story than that…can you explain further about what exactly you are doing and what you expect?)
I want to paste same text to all columns,
I don’t think the default paste does just that, but the result is not as expected, for me at least
More details than that would help even more. As far as I can tell, your described scenario is very doable. Here’s what I do:
- select (in non-column mode) some text (best to NOT span multiple lines with the selection!)
- copy to clipboard
- get a thin column mode caret (you seem to already know how to do this) at the desired insertion point
All lines spanned by the thin caret now get the same text inserted.
ok, it’s working, I cannot remember what I was doing wrong,
thanks for the answers
