That is cute. You left out, change/copy a string, change/copy arguments, repeat last edit, undo and replay edits I made before the current edits (because I liked that attempt better), increment number, move to matching brace/quote... Combined with, record these set of actions is awesome.

See I understand the missing shortcuts because Vim and emacs were missing from your editor list. These aren't trivial to learn editors, but there is reason those of us who have laugh in the face of keyboard shortcuts.

Haha I knew this would come up. Personally I'm used to using these editors and figured editors like vim/emacs were more advanced and not used by newer devs. I'll probably get there one day though.

I think learning vim was so worth it as a dev. Vim is almost everywhere.
