One of the most missing features in juffed (for me) is the "block selection" mode (selecting columns, not entire rows) like in kwrite and enother editors.

Can it be implemented in juffed? Or is it still using only features provided by underlying qscintilla (which does not support it (when I asked in the mailing list months ago))?

    Indeed, QScintilla doesn't have a high-level API for block selection, but it has a low-level API for it. In fact, there is a very basic (and very buggy) implementation of that feature in JuffEd 0.8.1: you can select a block with Shift+Alt+arrows but there is not much you can do with it for now: just delete the selected text or type some more text at several lines at the same time.
    I'm going to improve it for sure (after I'm done with refactoring the code base, improving the search and plugins API).
