ALT + left-mouse-button-drag
- keep the
ALTkey pressed first and then click the left mouse button and drag it up or down vertically
- the same hotkeys can be used to draw a rectangular selection (aka column selection)
ALT + LEFTand
ALT + RIGHTwill position one (or all) cursors at the beginning respectively end of the line
We often deal with multiple datasets and tables that have the exact same structure, e.g. due to sharding. In those cases it's often required to modify different parts of the query in the exact same way so that multiple cursors come in handy.
