Description lars 2002-09-09 10:34:29 UTC
so blocks like  xx  are selected as  II  only and not as  II
                x                    I                    II
                x                    I                    II

which might cause problems when copy and pasting this 2x3 "blocks" when one 
only wants the 4cell block.

perhaps see issue 6705 (allow copying multiple cells)

HI Lars, 
   I can`t understand what you mean,please give me a more 
Comment 3 lars 2003-09-05 07:02:00 UTC
If the cursor is in a cell containing data "Block selecting" via 
keyboard Ctrl and *  (* from Numblock) selects the biggest possible 
block of contiguous data which contains this cell. This block is 
always rectangular however; I like to have a non-rectangular block 
selected then, this means the exact outline of the "contiguous cells" 
containing this cell.

My original description might be misleading: it should read :

   blocks like  xx  should be selected as  II  only
                x                          I                   
                x                          I                

   currently they are selected as  II

   where  x  marks cells containing data and  I  marks highlighted 
(selected) cells.
