The intented use of ${SELECTION/*/} in snippets


#1

The way I am used to using this in Sublime Text is:

  1. Select a piece of text
  2. Run cmd + shift + P (command palette) and run the snippet that uses $SELECTION from there

But I don’t see a way to do this inside c9, so I guess it’s supposed to be used differently, perhaps using a trigger or guards?
