Textmate used to allow selecting multiple lines and doing + + A to add text to the end of each line.

This no longer seems to work in Textmate 2.

Any ideas if this feature still works?

  1. Select all the lines you want to edit.
  2. Turn it into a column selection ().
  3. Then + to move all the carets to the end of each line.

The answer was found at Textmate 2 Tips.

Alternatively to steps 1 and 2, you can make the original selection by holding down the option key () while making the selection with the mouse.
