In sublimetext I often use the key combination CTRL+A, CTRL+SHIFT+L, END to frequently highlight all rows and continue editing each line with common text. (See pic)

What would the key combination be for this in notepad++ or can you not do this at all in notepad++?

enter image description here

  • What do you mean with: "start mass editing lines"? Settings > Shorcut Mapper ... allows to view/modify/create shortcut. – Toto Apr 23 '19 at 15:38
  • I will get the cursor on every line, at the end of each line. You can get this in notepad++ with CTRL+ALT+Move Mouse to where you want across multiple lines, but I want to be able to do this with keyboard shortcuts across the entire document. I often have too many rows to scroll down. – TEEKAY Apr 23 '19 at 16:52
  • Could you explain what you are trying to do? May be there are some other ways to do the job. – Toto Apr 23 '19 at 17:07
  • I've added a pic of what I'm trying to accomplish. – TEEKAY Apr 23 '19 at 17:42
  • If you want to append common text to the end of each line, have you considered using a Regex search/replace? – Doug Deden Apr 23 '19 at 18:16

I'm afraid there is no such behaviour in Notepad++, but you can do Find/Replace, here is a way to go:

  • Ctrl+H
  • Find what: $
  • Replace with: whatever you want at the end of each line
  • check Wrap around
  • check Regular expression
  • Replace all
  • Appreciate the digging. Not what I wanted to hear but it's a good workaround. It's really the only feature keeping me away from notepad++ for my daily stuff right now. – TEEKAY Apr 23 '19 at 19:44

This answer is a bit late, but I hope to be useful...

You could achieve this by Ctrl+Click (with Multi-Editing enabled) at the end of each line you want to manipulate. Then just type whatever you'd like to append. Not so sophisticated, but works for small number of lines.
