Frequently, I need to turn the several lines of text into a bulleted list. For example, I will want to turn this:

 

list item 1

list item 2

list item 3

 

Into this:

 

- list item 1

- list item 2

- list item 3

 

I created a command that will send the keys  "-{down}{Home}" X amount of times,  which is not ideal because it requires me to know how many items I am listing. For example, I would have to say, "bullet list down 3"  in order  to prepend the - character 3 times. If it's a lot of text, then I need to run the command multiple times or sit there counting lines. I have better things to count!

 

so what I want is a command that will:

 

- read the currently selected text

- count the amount of linebreaks in that text

- insert a "-" character after every line break (i.e., at the beginning of every)

 

I have no idea how to go about this. Is this possible?
