Tip: Select Block Text
Posted by Ion Toma on April 17, 2006
Normally, if we want to select several lines of text, this is done on line-by-line base.
With block selection, by holding the ALT key while dragging the cursor within the code window, we can select a rectangle, rather than selecting it line by line. We can call it vertical block selection. It can be very useful when we have to delete unnecessary text, like in the following example. Please take a look at the Flash Demonstration to see it in action.
