Really awesome. Didn't know about this so far. Really handy!

Glad it helps! The problem with this approach is when your code is indented. If you select and drag the whole line for step 1, step 3 will add the tags at the beginning of each line (leaving an empty space after the new tag).

A better solution for this will be:

  1. Select the line of interest while holding down option
  2. control + shift + W
  3. Type your tag
