Odd behaviour of collumn select with keyboard

Bent Furevik 8 years ago updated by Jon Skinner 8 years ago 2
When selecting collumns of code with Ctrl+Alt + Up or Down the marker only expands in height. I think it should have one fixed point of origin from where the marker expands either up or down, but not in both directions. Now I have to start over if I selected too much. 

I'm on Windows btw.
The markers should also let go when you use only the arrows, as one should be able to unmark the text.
You can use the Edit/Undo Selection menu to to go back after pressing too many times
