Would like to be able to select multiple lines when commenting on code

    Hi Adam,

    When we wrote the feature we debated if we should support multi-line selections. Crucible does but we felt that it confuses the UI and did not have a compelling enough usecase.

    Cheers,

    Dylan

    Currently there is no way to reference multiple lines, other than the line numbers (which I understand is crude, but can be effective). As Dylan mentions, this isn't an oversight so much as a conscious decision, one that we knew had both pros and cons.

    While reviewing, I've an objection about 3 lines of code. Hence I would like to point to those all the 3 lines instead of one line for my comment. Hope that gives you a reason to re-consider?

    Yeah, it isn't stopping the rotation of earth if I can't point to all the 3 lines. But yes, as a Github user I've seen we can do that and it was useful and I hope there are others who feel so.
