Does Komodo support column (block) selection?


Yes, to perform a column selection in Komodo, you will need to hold down the Shift and Alt keys whilst performing selection movements. For large blocks, it is often easier to select the area with the mouse first using the default selection method, then change the selection to a block selection by holding down the Alt and Shift modifiers and using the arrow keys to refine.

What about column editing?

No, column editing is not support by Komodo. Column editing is a follow-on from column selection, in which as you edit, changes are made to all the lines in the block selection, not just the current line.

Column editing was introduced in Komodo 4.4. The documentation can be found here:

Is there any way to bind this back to a simple Command + click / drag on OS X? That's what it was on my previous version of Komodo IDE, anyways, but updating to 8 reset it to Alt + Shift + click / drag.
