I'm a first-time user of Sublime and, while I generally like it quite a bit, I'm having a pasting-related problem that might be a deal breaker for me. So I want to see if anybody can help me find a solution.
Here's the issue. When I'm coding I frequently copy and paste e.g. a variable or function name to save time when using it again in the same file. In Notepad++ (which is what I used until now) this works as expected, but in Sublime I end up with edit points at both the point I copied from and the point I pasted to, so continuing to type after pasting results in unwanted text at the point I copied from. I know I can press the Escape key to undo the multiple select, but this generally leaves the edit point at the point I copied from, so I still have to use the mouse to return the edit point to the correct spot.
What I want to know is whether there's a way to disable multiple select being triggered when something is pasted from another point in the same file. I've looked through the default preferences but there doesn't seem to be one that controls this.
It'd be a shame to have to forgo using Sublime because of this issue, but when it's such a frequent occurrence I don't think it's gonna work very well to just put up with it.
