In Delphi IDE, blocking text (either using arrow keys or mouse) while holding down Alt+Shift will mark the text as a rectangular block.
This is a quite helpful feature in certain cases. I'll be glad to see the HippoEDIT IDE have this feature.  ;D

Hi and welcome.

Of course you can select block-wise with HippoEDIT, just use Ctlr+Alt plus an Arrow-key (up/down/left/right)

See point 4) of that thread for more => http://forum.hippoedit.com/faq/howto-do-selections-in-an-document/msg2617

Yes, this functionality is already inside. Thanks Stefan.
