Rectangular Selections

The User Interface > Preview/Edit Window > Text/Edit Tab > Rectangular Selections

Sometimes you need to be able to select a rectangular area in the editor. To do so, turn OFF the Word-Wrap toolbar button, and hold down the ALT key as you drag. This is useful for deleting sections of text, or using the COPY button to make a new clip out of the rectangular selection.  Do you have data with a column of numbers that you want to isolate?  Use the rectangular selection, and then the Copy button.  Now you have a new clip, with just that column of data.

Most of the toolbar buttons will not work with rectangular selections, and are greyed when performing this operation.
