    How to do Column Select in Notepad++ Editor

    At my workplace, I always prefer to use Editplus Editor. I use this editor for everything.

    I was forced to switch to Notepad++ Editor recently. The reason for switching is that we don’t have a full version of Editplus.

    There are lots of features that i like about Editplus, One such feature is Column Select.



    What is Column Select ?

    Ability to select columns across lines. Once you select it, you can either delete it or cut it or do whatever you want.

    In Editplus, Column Select shortcut key is ALT + C.

    When i started using Notepad++, I started missing this feature. This Column Select feature is not listed in the Menu but, listed in Editplus menu. Finally found the solution.
