Any good colomn editor for inserting numbers in rows

25 Sep 2018, 04:13

hello i am looking for a way to do the reversed of this little video

i want to be able to insert numbers over 100 lines at once, in the video i can do it with notepad++ (i know i can do it in scite 2)

but my problem is i want to sometimes do it descending and bolt of these do it up only unless i am missing something obvious

thank you for ideas /links
just thoughts , ok needs an useless ahk-script , type 100-001 , then ctrl+c/ctrl+v
I use often an ahk-script to change text-files ( drag&drop xy.txt .. etc > xy_new.txt )

sorry i should have been more clear, what i want is to be able to do this in big blocks of text without effecting the rest of the column, i only need to change a row of digits in each block i make

thnx for the pointer

1. create multiple cursors: https://www.sublimetext.com/docs/3/mult ... board.html
2. open command palette: Ctrl Shift P
3. type in the command, press enter
4. [optional] type in the command parameters, if any, press enter

packages are usually installed using a package manager: https://packagecontrol.io/installation
