I'm using Sublime Text 3 on Windows 8.1. Could be ST2, I don't think this is relevant.
I'm aware we can add multiple cursors to select different portions of different lines. Also, if we're looking for the same instance of a word, then we can just hit Ctrl+D to select the next, and so on.
But what if I want to select two words or phrases in the same line? For example: "Winners don't use drugs" I'm navigating the caret with the arrow keys so I can select the word "Winners" by doing a hold Shift+right arrow. At that point, if I want to add the word "drugs" to the selection, then I'd have to hold Ctrl and use the mouse over it.
Can it be done via keyboard? Splitting into lines is not the point since this is all 'inline'. Also, navigating with Ctrl+arrows will cause the previous selection to be lost.
The idea here is to easily select two words or expressions to transpose, like: "drugs don't use Winners".
