    Hi,

    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.

    For example:

        #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;<-cursor

    Sorry, these issues will be fixed on v18.2.0 beta.
    Thank you!

    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)

    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).

    The current behaviour:

    @Yutaka ,

    —————————><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.
    Thanks,
