Overview

Make, copy, and search multiple concurrent text selections.

Make multiple noncontiguous text selections at a time in webpages. Text can be copied to clipboard through ctrl+c or the right-click copy option. You can also search your text on Google, YouTube, and Wikipedia through the right click selection menu. Usage Make additional text selections while holding down ctrl. Clear all selections by clicking without holding ctrl. Undo the most recent selection with ctrl+z. On Macs, use cmd instead of ctrl. Lock selections with ctrl+shift+L. When selections are locked, they will not disappear when left-clicking. This prevents accidentally clicking out and clearing your selections. While locked, ctrl/cmd is not needed to make selections. Leave locked mode and clear all highlighted text by pressing ctrl+shift+L again. Right click any selection for search options. Select MultiSearch to open a search tab for each selection. Select CombinedSearch to open a single search tab for each selection separated by a space. Right click the extension icon in the Chrome toolbar (top-right of the browser) and select options to enable or disable the context menu search options. Select the extension icon to toggle copy options. If 'Copy With Newline' is selected, each selection will be separated by a newline when copying. If 'Copy With Spaces' is selected, each selection will be separated by spaces when copying. If 'Copy With Bullets' is selected, each selection will be copied as a bullet point. Notes - The extension is automatically disabled by Chrome in the store description. Try it out on other sites. - Refresh any current tabs when first installing to activate the extension on those pages. This is not necessary for new tabs. - When selecting separate words throughout a web page, you can double-click while holding ctrl instead of dragging to select. - When making overlapping selections, ctrl+z will remove the combined selection. - Selections are sent to the clipboard and searched in the order they are selected. - Copied selections will be in plain text. - A single selection containing text on separate lines will be treated as multiple selections when MultiSearching. This keeps you from having to individually select multiple lines that are grouped together.

Just what I needed to select different parts of text. On Mac, restart the browser after installing to make the plugin work, and hold the Command Key while double clicking on the text you want to select.
