Blocking Text / Column Mode

In Column Mode the operation of the editor is changed for selecting text. When Column Mode is selected highlighted text is based on the character column position of the first character selected to the column of the last character of text selected. Text selected in this mode does not automatically include all text between the start and end position, but includes all text in the columns between the first and last character selected. Column Mode editing is sometimes referred to as block mode editing as the act of selecting text forms a rectangle.  

 

UltraEdit supports two different methods of selecting text in Column Mode.  Pressing ALT+C will toggle Column Mode on and text will be selected in a block as described above.  Users may also hold down the ALT key while dragging the cursor to make a selection and Column Mode will automatically be toggled on for this selection.
