It would be very handy to be able to make vertical/rectangular selections not only with the mouse (which is currently done by holding down the alt-key on the keyboard and then clicking and dragging with the mouse), but also by using the keyboard only.
For normal “horizontal” selections, as everyone knows, this can be done by holding down the shift-key and then pressing the arrow keys, so reasonably it should be possible to do this for vertical/rectangular selections by holding down the alt-key (or alt + shift if you want to be completely consistent) and then using the arrow keys in the same way, but today this does not work in EmEditor, which feels quite unnecessary and often frustrating. 🙁
So, could you please consider adding this simple feature in an upcoming update of EmEditor?
Ok, thanks, that works. It’s still not nearly as simple, intuitive and consistent as just alt+arrowkeys (or alt+shift+arrowkeys) though, so it would be great if you would consider adding that shortcut too if possible.
