Good post. Especially for someone like me who tries to let go Sublime.
What I still couldn't figure it out is how could you select some code from several lines.
In Sublime, I could click where I want to start, then hold Shift and click where I want to stop, then hold Ctrl and click where I start selecting again and hold Shift and click where I want to stop.
In VS when I do that it gets selected all the lines.

Thank you :)

What I do in that case I select what I want to highlight for example _id and then I press CTRL+d and this will also select the next instance of _id.
