Column/Block Marking

Post by pwdiener »

Is there a way to select a rectangular block using the keyboard? It's easy enough to do with the mouse, but not always very convenient. I can't find any significant difference between column marking and block marking using the keyboard. What I'd like to be able to do is to select a few columns on the first line, then extend the selection for just those columns on subsequent lines using Shift-Down or Shift-PgDn. Am I missing something?

Yes. Just bind any key to the MarkColumnToggle function.
What I'd like to be able to do...
The marking can also be controlled via macro so basically anything should be possible.

OK, guess I didn't try quite hard enough. My mistake seems to start with assuming that I needed to use the Shift key to select - that doesn't appear to work, but I can now mark columns using the arrow keys alone. Thanks.

The Windows CUA Marking defines how the Shift key should work in all Windows application.

Also in the Zeus keyboard mapping you will find the Enable CUA marking option.

If that option is on Zeus will use the Shift key as per that Windows CUA Marking standard.
