Mouse select/capture as a block of text

Brian Bruggeman 6 years ago 0

Visual Slickedit has a cool feature where the mouse can select a block of text as a rectangle within the screen rather than across lines of text.  For example:

   a quick text example of where something
   might be a block select rather than a text line

   select


if we used a block select on the first two characters in the above text, we'd have 3 lines:

 

   ['a ',

    'mi',

    'se']


This can be very useful for inserting text, filling in comments, cutting text, etc.
