Is there a keyboard shortcut to select a whole line?

When making cloze deletion cards, it would be really useful for me to have a keyboard shortcut that selects a whole line at once, not word by word.

No matter where the cursor is in that line, if possible.

Is there a keyboard shortcut for this?
Or an add-on?

    If there is one, I'm not aware of it. You could probably use an external keyboard macro program to send a series of keystrokes which accomplishes it however.
