Block selection in AiE Editor?

Good evening everyone,

I couldn't find the option for blockselection in the new editor.  ( See documentation of the current ABAP-Gui-Editor )

Any hints how to achieve this?

Or in general - is there a document that describes the features / capabilities of the new AiE Editor(s)?

For Block Selection Mode:

This feature comes from eclipse itself for all text based editors.

1) You can toggle between standard and block selection by Alt+Shift+A (or press Ctrl+3, type "toggle block" and select Toggle Block Selection command).
2) Use Ctrl+3 and write "block" in pop-up.
3) If you are on a mac you can use option+command+A


You can always see the list of shortcuts with Ctrl+Shift+L. Block selection shortcut is on the bottom of this list.

For Finding all the features:

In Eclipse IDE, go to toolbar menu option Help->Help Contents. Checkout "SAP - ABAP Development User Guide". It contains description of all the features.
