A feature that I love in VSCode is to be able to use my mouse to click at multiple points in the screen and type with multiple cursors.
I am aware that in Vim you can do the same in visual mode, but I've found that it can only be done when the column numbers align and the rows are one after another. What I'm asking is for something similar to
t mode in vifm.
What if I wanted to 'select' word 3 in line 1 and word 7 in line 4? I would like to type the same thing after word 3 in line 1 and after word 7 in line 4. Currently I type it in line 1 first, yank, and paste it in line 4 (after word 7). Really, the only need of this features is to be able to type the same message at different points in the file.
Is there a way of placing my cursor after these words individually rather than visually selecting everything in between the two (or recording a macro). I don't want to install the multicursor plugin and wondering if this can be done natively (potentially in select mode). Thanks in advance.
