Support deleting non-contiguous selections
Open, Stalled, LowestPublic


Delete two or more passages of text that are not contiguous

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Ctrl-select a passage of text
  2. Ctrl-select a second passage of text that is not contiguous
  3. Press delete

Actual Results:
Only the passage furtherst down the document is deleted. It does not matter what order the passages are selected in (ie it is not necessarily deleting the last selected)

Expected Results:
All selected items should be deleted on pressing delete.

Multiple selections work in the source editor, which correctly handles the selection for all Del, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-X operations. This is therefore a loss of functionality in VE.

Reproducible: Always
