Multiple cursors: hotkeys only respect the last selected cursor

While working with multiple cursors, I noticed that using hotkeys isn’t working as expected: If you try to CTRL+B several selections at the same time, only the last selected cursor actually gets marked as bold. The same issue exists with CTRL+I and I suspect any other hotkey that manipulates text.

Steps to reproduce

(This bug is reproducible in the help-vault)

  1. Activate multi cursors by ALT+LMB on text
  2. Mark texts that should be bold/emphasized by selecting it with SHIFT+ARROW-KEY
  3. Press hotkey (e.g. CTRL+B or CTRL+I)
  4. Only the last selection actually is bold/emphasized now, any previous cursor gets ignored.

Expected result

All text selections by the multi-cursors should be bold/emphasized.

Actual result

The hotkey only worked on the last selected multi-cursor, instead of every multi-cursor.
