Add multi cursor to command pallet and ability to assign a hotkey

Use case or problem

Right now, the only way to enable multi cursor is to use the mouse. In other IDEs, you can assign a hotkey to enable the multi-cursor on the selected lines.

Proposed solution

  • Add Enable Multi Cursor or some IDEs (Jetbrains) call it column mode
  • Add the ability to assign a hot key to turn on multi cursor for the highlighted lines

Current workaround

We have to use the keyboard + mouse to enable multicursor instead of just using the keyboard


The plugin is also another way to enable multi cursors on selected text, but it only does it if it matches patterns.
