I've had a similar experience of being surprised by this (very cool) feature.  I haven't lost anything, but I'd also like to turn it off. 

I was able to download the <plist> file in the previous message, but double-clicking it opens in TextMate.  The name is "Disable Command Click.tmMacro.txt".   From https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202292 it seems it should have the suffix ".plist" but I don't know where to put the file.  Anyone know how to install a plist file?

Is there a way to change the default modifier key that enables multiple caret selection by mouse? Default is 'cmd'.
Long story short: If somehow possible, I'd like to rebind the 'cmd' modifier to something like 'cmd+shift', making it less likely I enable multiple carets by accident.

It cannot be configured, but you can (sort of) disable it by making a no-op macro that triggers on command click.

I have attached an example of this, double-click to install.

This of course means that you will lose the feature, I don’t know if that is a problem.
