Sometimes I want to create several multiple selections on the same column, in theory a perfect application for the C command. However, I often press C one more time than I wanted and then have to start again. : (
Is there a way to “undo” the C and remove the last selection from the set of selections? Or, alternatively, is there another way to create multiple selections on the same column that doesn’t have this shortcoming?
In :doc keys multiple-selections, the section that describes the <C> command, it also mentions <,> (comma), the key to drop all selections except the main selection, and <a-,>, the key to drop the main selection and leave the others.
When you press C, the newly created selection becomes the main selection, so you can use <a-,> to drop it and go back to the way things were before.
