Mouse multi-cursor placement disabled while file has properties

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open file that contains at least one property.
  2. Hold middle mouse button over multiple lines that don’t wrap, outside of any text on said lines.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

A new cursor is placed at the end of each line passed.

Actual result

The text is selected instead.

Additional information

The middle mouse should not add a new cursor. It’s alt-click.

I can’t reproduce this.

Are you dragging over the properties or text inside the file? Properties do not support multiple cursors.

Here is a video I’ve recorded showcasing the problem:

As seen, dragging middle click over multiple lines in the first example places multiple cursors, but after adding a property, the feature is disabled.

Do note that this is reproducible on my machine, both in my current vault, and a completely new vault.

Here is another video showcasing the problem on a new vault, just in case you don’t believe me:

I can reproduce the issue now, thanks!
