I recently switched from Textpad to Notepad++. Overall, I have found N++ to generally be superior, but one of the few things I have been looking for since the beginning that I have not found is the ability to extend the current selection to the next blank line.

In Textpad, this is done with ctrl + shift + up or ctrl + shift + down.

By default Ctrl [ and Ctrl ] move up and down "paragraphs".

So Ctrl Shift [ and Ctrl Shift ] will do what you want.

To edit the shortcut, go to Settings > Shortcut Mapper > Scintilla Commands and edit the SCI_PARA* commands.

Yes! Exactly what I wanted. – recursive Aug 27 '09 at 15:32

It's simply shift + up/down without pressing control.

No, this only selects one line, regardless of whether it's blank or not. – recursive Aug 27 '09 at 14:34
