Column selection, highlighting matching text in v5

#1 Column selection, highlighting matching text in v5

Posted by: ikea7788 | Date: 08/08/2017 08:42 | IP: IP Logged

Is there any way to implement the holding of "Alt+Shift" and using the arrow keys for column selection? Such mode is present in "programmers notepad" and I find it very useful and I really miss it in PSPad.

Also the highlighting of all strings matching a selected text in the current doc. would be nice.

I haven't tried the v5 yet so sorry if those are already implemented.

How to select column block:
- Alt + mouse, if this option is enabled in program settings / Editor 1
- Select column block mode (Shift+Ctrl+C) and select block with Shift + arrows
- Select Column block mode (Shift+Ctrl+C), go to start, pres F8, move to end and press F8

Yes, I am familiar with those. So none of the ones I mentioned are present. The "Select column block mode (Shift+Ctrl+C) and select block with Shift + arrows" is similar but why do we need a special mode instead of holding "Shift+Alt" down + arrows?

I understand, but you can simple press Ctrl+Alt+C (switch to column mode) and then select column with arrows.
