Selecting non-contiguous text using the macOS keyboard shortcut
Searching for the problem in both the Obsidian help docs and this forum
What I’m trying to do
I’m trying to select non-contiguous text in Obsidian for macOS, but the keyboard shortcut doesn’t seem to work. Is this because there is another shortcut for this action within Obsidian? If not, is there some other way I can configure this in my system preferences on my Mac?
I’d like to select multiple, non-contiguous portions of text and format them the same all at once. For example, say: In a list of vocabulary words and their definitions, selecting two vocabulary words within the list and adding bold asterisks to them, while not bolding their definitions which are contiguous following the vocab word in that line of text.
I am brand new to Obsidian, so I assume there is a reason for this, perhaps as a function of markdown language being incompatible with selecting text this way, or incompatible with the desired outcome of this action. Would you recommend a faster way of accomplishing this?
