Description brettryan 2016-07-08 08:53:23 UTC
When using the following key bindings [1] the editor should use the last search pattern if nothing is highlighted. This will enable regex caret insertion support.

- Add caret for the next occurence and enter multi-caret mode
- Add caret for all occurences and enter multi-caret mode
