We all now we can select all text (in a text area) in any app by using Ctrl/Cmd + A. And this feature is also available for a lot of other contexts such as file selection (in finder for ex), content selection (in photoshop for ex) etc... But in those other contexts you can also perform a multiple selection and an inverted selection among other stuff.
In the same way for text I would find very useful having shortcuts to be able to
- select multiple non-continuous text strings (I believe you can do this in Microsoft Word). I understand that might be complex to achieve in a rich text area. But how about a plain text area?
- "invert" the selected text as well, the same way as we do in Photoshop for a layer for example.
I know there is no built-in way to do this (either on mac or windows). But I wasn't able to find any method/trick to achieve it in my own custom way either (using 3rd-party apps, scripts).
Could anyone enlighten me on this please, especially on Mac? Thank you
