Multi-cursor edit on Find All

Use case or problem

When I want to find some text inside the note with Ctrl+F, I can highlight all the results with Alt+Enter, but it is not possible to edit the lines in bulk.

Proposed solution

It would be very convenient if pressing Alt+Enter, instead of just highlighting the result, added a multi-cursor with the selected text, similar to how VSCode does.

Current workaround

Currently I have to use find/replace to bulk edit, but it doesn’t let me edit the text outside of the query result. The alternative would be to Alt+Click on each result to add a cursor, but it is very time consuming. Realistically I just copy the note, open vscode, paste, edit, copy and paste again in obsidian, pretty annoying.
