Description Martin Fousek 2013-01-12 09:03:33 UTC
In the CSS editor I'm "writing" rule by these steps:
1, copy some previous similar (or CTRL+SHIFT+arrows)
2, change of the rule selector
3, I would like to change i.e. top: 0px -> bottom: 0px
but if you have something like this...
.article .box .photo .photo-copyright {
    position: absolute;
    bo|: 0px;
and you will code complete on the | position, this will be completed...
.article .box .photo .photo-copyright {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: : 0px;

Do you think that would be possible to detect already existing colon? Thanks a lot!

It is possible, but except the situation where the text to be completed exist after the anchor we never delete anything after the caret as this may not potentially be what the user expects.

I think you are right. I gave it a try and the current behaviour is really annoying.
Comment 3 Marek Fukala 2013-08-27 14:38:41 UTC
I'm afraid this is not easily doable given the current architecture limitations (csl.api) -> putting off
