Block Modes

Top  Previous  Next

The Bat! offers different text block selections:



Use the mouse or arrow keys to select continuous text; default



Complete lines of text get selected.



Vertical columns of text get selected. Especially useful in MicroEd for tables.


If you use Persistent blocks text remains selected until you select another, hide the selection or delete the selected text. Otherwise, the selection will be automatically hidden when you move the cursor to another position, type some text, or insert some text from the Clipboard.


The Override blocks option works only if you do not use Persistent blocks: Selected text is replaced by anything you type in, insert from the Clipboard; pressing <Del> delets the block.
