I've seen this done in TextMate and I was wondering if there's a way to do it in IDEA.
Say I have the following code:
leaseLabel = "Lease";
leaseLabelPlural = "Leases";
portfolioLabel = "Portfolio";
portfolioLabelPlural = "Portfolios";
buildingLabel = "Building";
Since Idea IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 there is possibility to edit multiple lines.
for selection. More about this new improvement in IntelliJ blogpost here. Very useful feature.
