Reason #137 to like TextEdit

April 23, 2007 | Computers

Non-continuous line selection.

Simply hold down the command (apple) key while selecting lines and you can select any number of out of order lines throughout the document.

This just saved me a ton of time formatting a 500 row, 5 cell per row, html table.

  • Funny you should mention that. I, too, just discovered that feature. XD

  • Er, wait. No. Wrong feature.

    I discovered what you could do with the option key, not the command key. It’s like…vertical selection.
