Agree about multiple lines. I always use Ctrl/Cmd + D after selecting text to change multiple instances but this will be nice.

 

You guys do realize that multiline editing has been a feature of pretty much any IDE for at least 7-8 years, right? I like VSCode but let's not make it look like they made some breakthrough with this.

Came here to say that too. My muscle memory prefers the way Visual Studio and Notepad++ has done it for years. Put the caret at a place on the line, and hold ALT-SHIFT and press UP or DOWN, and that will put the caret insertion/deletion point on multiple lines. Then type or delete or do whatever to do it on each of the lines. But in VS Code, it duplicates lines - same key commands, but completely different result. :(
