When editing a file like this:
#10 addend = 0; augend = 0; #10 addend = 0; augend = 1; #10 addend = 0; augend = 2; #10 addend = 0; augend = 3;
If I choose the semicolons at the end of each line, and press arrow down key twice, I expected the cursors
to move down two lines vertically. However, EmEditor doesn’t seem to remember the horizontal location correctly.
Also, I found it a bit annoying that when pressing ctrl and doing multiple selections, the original cursor will be unslected.
(Only the cursors after pressing ctrl are selected, not the original one)
And I would appreciate it if the current line highlight works with multiple lines selection.October 1, 2018 at 8:38 pm #23770
#10 addend = 0; augend = 0;<-cursor #10 addend = 0; augend = 1;<-cursor #10 addend = 0; augend = 2;
After pressing down key, I expect (which is correct in EmEditor):
#10 addend = 0; augend = 0; #10<-cursor addend = 0; augend = 1; #10<-cursor addend = 0; augend = 2;
And another down key:
#10 addend = 0; augend = 0; #10 addend = 0; augend = 1;<-cursor #10 addend = 0; augend = 2;<-cursorOctober 3, 2018 at 9:41 am #23772
Sorry, these issues will be fixed on v18.2.0 beta.
Thank you!October 6, 2018 at 12:18 am #23795
I have tried the new beta version, but I am expecting that after moving the cursor up and down once, the position of the cursors will not change.
#10 addend = 0; augend = 0; #10<-cursor addend = 0; augend = 1;<-cursor #10<-cursor addend = 0; augend = 2;
Also, is it possible to have the blue background of selected line for multiple lines selection? (Not only the left part, but also the entire line)October 6, 2018 at 10:10 am #23796
I am not exactly sure how you want the multiple cursors move. Could you upload a screencast, or illustrate exactly how you want multiple cursors move before and after the UP or DOWN key is pressed (both current behavior and expected behavior).October 13, 2018 at 11:36 pm #23842
The current behaviour:
And this is what I expected:

—————————><Put cursor here.
Put the cursor between “><” in the 1st line.
Press Down/Up key.
The single cursor actually keeps the initial X position, unless you move it horizontally.
When in multiple-cursor mode, each cursor should move as a single cursor.
The current change is not good. I can’t see its usefulness.
Thank you for the change on Ctrl+clicking.
Hope the other issues can be improved when you have time:

I see you want each cursor keeps its own horizontal position independently. We will try to fix that way.
