    1 == Description == 
     1= Rectangular Text Selection = 
    22 
    3  * Rectangular selection 
    4  * press Shift and Alt keys together while selecting with the mouse or the arrow keys 
     3Simple text editors usually only allow you to select contiguous lines of text with your mouse. 
     4Sometimes, however, it is handy to be able to select a rectangular area of text for more precise 
     5cutting/copying/pasting or performing search/replace on. You can select a rectangular area in Padre 
     6by holding down '''Shift+Alt''' whilst selecting text with your mouse or the arrow keys.

     8For example, imagine you have the following nicely formatted hash assignment in a Perl source file: 
     9{{{ 
     10  my %hash = ( 
     11      key1 => 'value1', 
     12      key2 => 'value2', 
     13      key3 => 'value3', 
     14 ); 
     15}}} 
     16With a rectangular text selection you can select only the keys, only the values, etc..
