iedit example - multiple find and replace

If you have text you want to edit in multiple places at the same time, rather than the traditional find/replace, you can select all the regions and use multiple cusors to edit all regions simultaneously.

  • Put the cursor over the word you want to replace
  • v to enter visual (select) mode
  • SPC v to select word or region
    • v increases the selected region
    • V to reduce selected region
  • e for iedit state
  • C-; to edit selection
    • n jump to next matching selected region
    • p jump to previous matching selected region
    • M-j deselect current region
    • S substitute text in all regions
    • D delete all selected regions

SPC s e matches all instances of a region under the cursor (iedit state)
