Multiple line edit

A feature suggestion (especially useful for the Mac) would be the ability to do multiple line editing (like BBEDIT or Notepad++) say to add a tab or correct something across multiple lines.

A full multi-cursor edit like sublime might be overkill but BBEDIT style would be very useful.

any other interest in this?

In case you are asking if there is anyone but @JEBR interested in this, then the likes on the post generally give an indication of its popularity and who supports it.

Not to say it would not be a nice-to-have feature, but multi-line editing is not something supported by Apple’s text frameworks directly, so not likely to be added to Drafts. More of a feature for purpose-built text editors, that have their own text rendering engine.
