Thanks for sharing! I already knew about these tricks. So there was not a lot for me to pick up from this video. But I clicked the like button anyway, because this is very helpful for beginners.

1:38 This is officially called “column mode editing”. Selecting multiple columns on multiple lines should be called “multi line column selection”, or simply just “column selection” if you ask me.

With the risk of being a bore, I will go on to say that regular line selection is also a type of column selection. But the selection for each line starts at column 1 (right after CR/LF) which is a big nuisance for programmers, since they usually indent their code.

Selection alone is only one kind of editing. Or actually, no editing at all. Selection alone is not an edit. There are several ways you can use the column mode editing though.

One thing I like to do is use the Alt key and make a vertical line selection at a given column, without selecting anything. That’s a quick way to place out multiple carets at these columns. I can then remove or add characters on all the selected lines using the keyboard. Another way is to use the Ctrl key and click on each line, but that’s much slower if you want the carets to sit on the same column on each line (editing aligned text). Also, you can use Alt+Shift if you are a keyboard person, instead of Alt and clicking.

Liked. Beautifully presented. 🙂

Ronan Clancy says:

After select a column when using the alt key is it possible to PASTE into the column?…ie

if I select column 3(the number 2)


can I paste in the number 4…


Cheers for the tips:)

Samir Gunic says:

2:24 That’s side by side view. 4:52 Shift+Tab is the default keyboard shortcut for decreasing an indent in many programs. For indented and aligned code lines however, Npp should automatically align your code even when you increase the indent using the Tab key. But surely, using Shift+Tab is a way to quickly reset any misalignment. This is a very good tip. 6:16 In version 6.9 this is now available from the context menu. 7:16 This one is very powerful! I would normally use the command line for this, but not having to leave the editor and having all the results presented in one view is very powerful and useful indeed. I might start using this actually. This is one of those features that are neglected and underused.
