I saw this trick while learning about Unit Testing in Python to help speed up editing code which is copy-pasted, but needs some slight changes when using PyCharm

1. Click on where you want your cursor to be first.
2. Hold the “Alt” Key
3. While holding the Alt Key, click where else you want the cursor.
4. Enjoy Editing!

Demonstration

Hope this saves time!
