Menu: Block > Select without Shift


Default Shortcut Key: Alt+M


Macro function: SelectWithoutShift()


This command can be using to initiate a text selection mode in which the Shift key does not need to be kept depressed during selection, as is the custom under Windows.  After this command is issued, any cursor movement command can be used to extend the selection as desired.  The text selection can be released by pressing Escape


The type of selection that results is determined by the current selection mode, which can be set using the Select Columnar and  Select Streamcommands.


bm2Former users of Boxer/DOS may welcome this command as it provides a method of text selection that approximates the operation of our earlier products.
