cool, some extra tricks!
I prefer cmd/ctrl + j for opening terminal, it doesn't stop any of the processes, it just hides the panel
and another useful multi-select shortcut is cmd/ctrl + i, which puts a cursor on every selected line

πŸ‘‹ Hey Rien! Thanks so much for your generous share! I'm adding cmd+j on my list soon!

A shortcut i recently discovered is ctrl + enter, which just gives you a new line without creating a mess regardless of where you were in the line.

I used to just ctrl + right arrow as I could never remember where my end key is on my many laptop keyboards (3: work, gaming, toaster-level pc) but this new trick is super handy.

Also surprised you didn't mention all the multi cursor tricks.
