i wonder if i'm doing it wrong but ST just doesn't let me type or insert into a block selection the way i'd want/expect. Coming from jEdit i'm used to this: if i select some block in the buffer, jEdits pads all lines which don't have any chars at that column with whitespace.. thus if i paste in or start typing, it's at all lines at the column i wanted/selected. ST however will let me do this _only_ if there actually is code at that column in any given line.. if not, the curser in that line will be after it's last char..
It's a bit hard to explain, so i made a short screencast comparing both behaviours: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10220684/screen ... insert.mov
So my question is: is it my fault, am i doing it wrong (tried all kind of key combos though), or is it just the way it is? If the latter: how about implementing such beaviour as a option?
