Add support for multiple cursor in the code editor #1006

Today I missed that feature, I usually use editors like SublimeText, Atom or PyCharm, they all have that keybinding to make a multiple cursor selection

It would be great to have this somehow implemented in the notebook

Any ideas ?

Multiple cursors are possible - on my system I can Ctrl + click to create them. I forget if there's a keyboard shortcut, but somebody else should be able to tell you.

@radaniba This mailing list thread gives a bit of detail on the subject.

Here are some documents that you may find helpful on configuring the notebook frontend and keyboard shortcuts:

Codemirror (used by Jupyter) already supports multiple cursors, but the key bindings used in Jupyter don't match the ones you would expect as a Sublime or Atom user. To make cmd-D (or ctrl-D) work see: #278
