pasting to multiples

    Hi Chami,

    I'm getting a lot of mileage out of HTML-Kit Tools, so I'm basically a happy customer.

    However, an issue that has arisen! At one point I was able to select multiple parts of code, then type in new text to replace all the multiples at once. Super-cool! But now when I select the second item, the two selected parts have the blinking cursor for a second or two, then only the 2nd item is selected. Bummer! What happened? Something I changed?

    Also, a little feedback on the HTML-Kit Tools help system. I realize that maintaining a help file is a job in itself, but I wish that there was more of a help file to explain things like the above. It's kind of a hassle to go to the forum and log in every time there's a question. And if the form remains the sole source of help information, I'd rather that the program just kicks me over to the forum in my favorite browser and does not use the proprietary interface, which 1) does not allow text searches, and 2) does not allow pasting in of user IDs and passwords.

    Anyway, thanks.

      Always nice to hear! Thank you.

      That feature is still there but I have a feeling something is refocusing
      the caret/cursor. Please check if the Color Picker plugin is open. If
      so, [X] close out "Color Preview" section of it.

      It should now be possible to hold the Ctrl key down and click multiple
      locations for multiple inserts.

      Good and very fair points. I'll try to clean up these messy and
      confusion parts of the site and support options. Thank you for the
      feedback Richard. And keep nudging me cuz I need to be pushed on this!
