thanks for the reply: ctrl + alt + a (hey, how do you create those nice-looking keys?!) creates two cursors, one before and one after the word, but not one at each of the highlighted words. Example:
stringy <- "foo"
stringy <-paste0(stringy, "bar")
If I select
stringy on the first line, ctrl + alt + a will give me a cursor before and after the word
stringy on the first line, but I was actually looking for a cursor before the word
stringy, on each line. I can insert multiple cursors in different lines at the same column keeping the Alt button pressed, but again, this is different from what I looked for. I guess the only other solution is to use Find & Replace, right?
Ps I didn't understand the snippet part, sorry! I'm not familiar with snippets
