    But what good would that do me? I really don't see the purpose.
    The announcement is only helpful in that it tells me that a cursor was being added, and also two numbers, separated by a colon, which in German translates to a time announcement like (8 12 AM) with my synthesizer. 😉 In the case of nothing being selected, it just says "cursor added".

    @nolan:thewordnerd.info can you file a new issue in https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode-pull-request-github and ping me on it @isidorn
    Alternatively I can connect you directly with Rachel the author of that extension so you can provide feedback in a call.
    @marcozehe:matrix.org thanks for trying it out!
    1. If you add a secondary cursor below and there is no line below, nothing will happen. So make sure that you at least have two empty lines
    2. If it just says "cursor added" that is a bug I will look into. I believe it actualy does not add the cursor and just announces it added it. I can push fix today
    3. Regarding selaction, if you use select something, press cmd + d (that will select the next occurence). And typing both will get replaced
    4. If you want to sync over a call let me know. I am in CET timezone and I have time today any time
    Clarifcation on 2. -> it should always say at what line:column the cursor was added

    @isidorn: Aha, so this multiple cursor thing really only makes sense if you have several occurrences of text in a file, select one and want to replace multiple of them?
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @marcozehe:matrix.org that is how I personally use it.
    Another use case is you have two empty lines and you want the same text in both lines. So you add a cursor below and start typing (useful for HTML which has a lot of duplicatino)

    Aha, yes, having an empty line below the current one, adding a cursor said (adding a cursor 13:1" (Spoken as 13 to 1" for me), and the text I typed appeared in both. I assume the cursor goes away as soon as I switch lines?

    @marcozehe:matrix.org the cursor will go away automaticaly if you merge them (for example you have two lines in total and you press down, then the first cursor will go down, second will stay in place and thus they merge). If you want to expcility remove the cursor you have to press esc
    And I do think that the issue is that there is no way to tell if the second cursor is still active or not
    Also here's the issue for the other problem you found microsoft/vscode#118965

    Hello guys,
    I remember that I saw something about this, but cant remember exactly what has been said. Is using Jupyter notebooks accessible in VS code? If not, is there a work around?
    Thanks!
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @mohammad-suliman hi! My college Peng is actually currently working on improving this. The current experience with VS Code insiders should be OK. It would be best if you can try it out and provide feedback here microsoft/vscode#111255
    Thanks a lot

    Hi all.
    I am developing a dotnet application inside a container and whenever I open a terminal, orca reads the following message:

    'Terminal 1 environment is stale, run the Show Environment Information command for more information'

    I press f1, type 'Show Environment Information', press enter but nothing happens.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @jvesouza I do not know. Best would be to file a new issue and I will forward it to Daniel who owns the Terminal and who would know more.

    I didn't find a simple way to create a new folder within the current folder from the VSCode file explorer.
    Whenever I try to create a folder it is created inside the folder that has the focus.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    @jvesouza yeah this might not be the nicest, but here the flow that will always work: when focused in the explorer press esc to focus the whole tree, trigger the new folder command (either via F1 > new folder or keybinding). That should work.
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    @isidorn Haha! The magic is to press the ESC key before creating a new folder. It worked perfectly, thank you.
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    @isidorn I am trying to reproduce the problem related to the message Terminal 1 environment is stale, but I still haven't been successful. As soon as I can, if I can, I will report.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @jvesouza great thanks for trying to repro!

    Oh neat, didn't know Escape focused the whole tree. I'll use that one next time, having to hunt up a top-level file works for me but is a bit annoying. 🙂 Thanks.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Yeah, it's pretty useful. It works in every list / tree as expected.

    I can't understand the difference between the 'remote ssh connect current window to host' and 'ssh connect to host' commands. Would anyone have an explanation? Thank you very much.

    Any thoughts if the status bar should be a tab stop in the navigation? Currently it is not, and only a special keybinding F6 puts focus into it. Do you think we should change this?
    Marco Zehe
    @marcozehe:matrix.org
    [m]
    I think, keeping F6 would be important. But now that each tabstop only stops in one container once, I think it is OK to include the status bar like other toolbars. After all, there are lots of controls in there one can interact with, so it is not just showing read-only status, but also has toolbar characteristics. Would get a 👍️ from me.
    I mean, include the status bar in the tab stops.
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    In addition to what was said by @marcozehe:matrix.org and with which I agree, I miss a command that allows me to jump directly to the status bar. When editing a line, for example, I need to identify the number or column in which the line is starting. It would be great if I could quickly jump to the status bar, identify this information and quickly return to the line that was being edited.

    @webczat
    I believe f6 makes you do that quick, but there are drawbacks. you may easily forget how many times to use it and in what direction, also, well, depending on where you are you don't always need one press. actually I am not sure how much you need to get there from the editor. I am for leaving f6 and possibly adding key binding specially designed to jump there. For it being a tab stop, I am not sure, I am definitely not against it
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    Thanks a lot for feedback. Based on the feedback I suggest that we then make the Status Bar a tabstop and we will intrdocue a command "Focus Status Bar" which would move the focus exactly there
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    @isidorn The creation of the command "focus status bar" seems interesting to me, but it would be excellent if there was a quick way to get back to the same point we were in when the command was invoked. Suppose we are in the file explorer and we invoke the command "focus status bar". By pressing the esc key or the f6 key, for example, we would return to the file explorer.

    @jvesouza while that makes sense we currently do not have the mechanism of remembering past focus. As a middle ground I can offer -> when focus inside status bar -> esc focuses the whole status bar. esc after that would focus the editor.
    So basically when focus on whole status bar esc would move focus to editor
    Michał Zegan
    @webczat
    proposed correction: editor or current view? as in... you probably cannot have more than one view open at the same time as in visible, right? so return to editor, if not present return to current view? it's the most likely correct target, probably. correct me if I'm wrong
    or that's not a good approach at all but I am not sure.
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    @isidorn Generally when I focus on the status bar I tend to be in the editor. If the esc key always returns to the editor it will be a big step forward, at least in my opinion.
    Michał Zegan
    @webczat
    unless you would use shortcuts to go to editor instead of esc
    not sure which, from explorer you could do ctrl+b to go to editor for example
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    I have pushed the changes to the status bar as we agreed. Try it out with vscode insiders from tomorrow and let me know how it behaves for you. Thank you
    José Vilmar Estácio de Souza
    @jvesouza
    @isidorn I tested the command 'focus status bar', and at least in my environment I need to press the esc key twice to return to the editor. This seems to happen if we use the arrows to move the focus to any of the items in the status bar. When pressing the esc key the orca reads the entire contents of the status bar and if I press the esc key again the focus returns to the editor.

    Is there any way to have items in the outline view collapsed by default? Sometimes I want to use the outline to navigate a file quickly, but the fact that everything appears expanded means I arrow down to a new symbol, collapse it, arrow down to the next symbol, collapse that, ... So it's rarely as useful as I want it to be.
    nolan
    @nolan:thewordnerd.info

    Not immediately clear why it would start expanded anyway. Seems like the point of that view is to have an overall glimpse of what's in the file, with the ability to drill down as needed.
    Isidor Nikolic
    @isidorn
    @nolan:thewordnerd.info as far as I know there is no way to do have the outline collapsed by default, feel free to file a new issue in our reporistory and my friend Joh might add it.
    In the menatime, there is a command outline.collapse, you could bind any keybniding to it, and always trigger that keybindgin when you want to collapse the outline view

    It is not possible to silence the orca using the ctrl key when the about dialog is being read. This problem was present in previous versions of electron, it was corrected in version 11 and it seems to be back in version 12.04.

    Hi,

    I'm making an accessible code ruler extension, and I want a way to display notifications that will be spoken by a screen reader, but also don't clog up the notifications view.

    The vscode.window.showInformationMessage function doesn't let me specify a timeout, and the vscode.window.setStatusBarMessage function doesn't speak when I use it.

    What other channels are available?

    Thanks in advance.
