Example of block editing in Atom

Example of block editing in Atom

I feel like I’ve waited my whole life for an editor that just does vertical block selection editing simply and easily. Even type and replace selection across the vertical block works.

How did I do it in Atom? Shift + Ctrl + Arrows to Select the block. Super easy and intuitive.

I love Atom.
