Action: split items under mouse cursor respecting selection
Right now it only splits the actual item your mouse is over

This would be the final solution to be able to split a selection of items with the mouse and only one click.

Right now if you have a bunch of selected items and want to split them at certain position you have to position the cursor there, then split. Two actions.

If you use "split item under mouse cursor" not all the selected items are splited, only the one your mouse is over.

I would like to select several items, then hit a shortcut for "split items under mouse cursor respecting selected items" and voilá!

Maybe there is another way of doing it right now, if so please tell me.

A macro can do this for ya:

View: Move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Split items at edit cursor

Yes but I don't want to move the cursor because after splitting you have to reposition the cursor to where it was.
Maybe a save and restore cursor position would do the trick.

Yup that will work, SWS has save and restore commands for the edit cursor position :)

Xenakios/SWS: Store edit cursor position
View: Move edit cursor to mouse cursor (no snapping)
Item: Split items at edit cursor
Xenakios/SWS: Recall edit cursor position

Added also: "Item: select item under mouse cursor (leaving others items selected)" so you don't have to select the item if you are splitting only one.

It works great, many thanks adam!
