    I find the ability to select a column very useful indeed. In fact, I often have to switch to Scintilla or Visual Studio to do this. In particular, being able to generate an insertion point that extends across many lines, THEN TYPE THE SAME CHARACTERS INTO ALL THE LINES SIMULTANEOUSLY, is really useful.

    For example, if you use DOxygen and you want to document all the members of a structure, you want to inset !< into the text for all the members at the same time.

    As soon as you have used it, you realise how useful it is.

    If you do allow this, please use Alt+select to enable it to match VS and Scintilla (Notepad++ is Scintilla).
