Expand Selection to Comments

Demo

Expands the current selection to fully enclose the intersecting comment block

  • works with multiple cursors
  • supports soft undo
  • supports comments divided with empty lines
  • works with any language that has syntax highlighting

Installation

  1. Install the Sublime Text Package Control package if it is not yet installed.
  2. Open the command palette and start typing Package Control: Install Package.
  3. Enter ExpandSelectionToComments.

Usage

The package exposes a single command: expand_selection_to_comments.
It can be bound to a key combination or invoked from the command palette.

{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+/"], "command": "expand_selection_to_comments" }

The command also accepts an optional direction argument that can be used to change the direction of the selection:

  • up from the current position to the beginning of the comment block
  • down from the current position to the end of the comment block.
{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+alt+/"], "command": "expand_selection_to_comments", "args": { "direction": "down" } },
{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+super+/"], "command": "expand_selection_to_comments", "args": { "direction": "up" } },

Implementation details

The command relies on the syntax highlighting information provided by Sublime Text which means that it can be used with any language that has syntax highlighting.
