We have brought the multiple selection experience from your favorite Code Editor to TablePlus’ Query Editor. And it’s available on the latest beta build and will be released on the official build of macOS version soon.

Here is the sneak peek of the multiple cursors:

1. To add cursors at arbitrary positions

To add an addtional cursor at a random place, select a position with your mouse/touchpad and use Cmd + Click.

3. To select multiple instances one by one

To select the next instance one by one, use Cmd + D.

  • When your selection is a string, highlight the string and press Cmd + D.
  • When your selection is a word, you can just put the cursor at the word and press Cmd + D without having to highlight the entire word first.
