Simultaneous typing (feature request)

Asked by Pawel on 2008-06-23

It would be very handy to have possibility to type simultaneously to chosen terminals.
Example uses: invoking ssh connection to same host many times, entering the same directory using 'cd'.

I can imagine it to work like this:
1. Press and hold some hot-key combination to activate terminal selection mode.
2. Select terminals (clicking on chosen ones with mouse while holding hot-key combination)
3. Release hot-key combination.
3. Start typing and observe text appearing in every chosen terminal :)
4. Click on any terminal to select it and deselect the rest. Or press and hold hot-key combination to select/deselect other terminals.

This is a fairly common suggestion, so we should probably a wishlist request for this. If you convert this question into a bug (either by using the "Create bug report" link on its page, or filing a new bug) I will mark it as a wishlist and propose we do this for 1.0 or shortly thereafter.
