Description eric.savary 2007-11-13 16:32:30 UTC
Currently the block selection ignores column breaks and selects over the break
without interrumption.

(See first screen shot attached)

This not the way MS-Word does AND not the way the user can expects.

When selecting in column 1 starting at caret position 6, the selction, when
jumping to column 2, should continue selection at caret 6 in column 2 (and not
like now at caret 0 in column 2) and so on...

(See second screen shot attached)

@AMA: we already discussed about thet. FL is on CC.
