I would like to know if it is possible to get text-editor-like functionality for selecting text in iTerm2. For example, in Sublime Text 3, I can do the following:
⇧ ⌥ → = Select word to the right of the cursor.
⇧ ⌘ → = Select entire line to the right of the cursor.
But I cannot for the life of me seem to do this in iTerm2. I can add actions that make my cursor jump over words, or jump to the end of the line, but not jump and select at the same time.
To be clear: I am not looking for an alternative to highlighting text in this manner (for example any method that begins with a ⌘ F search or that requires a mouse), I am looking for the exact functionality outlined above.
