Hi.

I've been using Notepadd++ for a while now and I love it. But recently I've come across an annoying problem. When I do multi-line tab npp makes a selection. And If I tab again it screws my codes. I can't do multi-line tab or delete.

To be more spesific this happens when working with html files. Specially if doctype is declared. I figured If I remove doctype I can tab just fine.

I don't always have this problem. Sometimes it works just fine. But when it happens it really annoys me. I try to reinstall npp. Sometimes work. Sometimes doesn't. I don't know what's causing this problem.

I've added a 37 secs long video to demonstrate the issue. Also I'm using npp 6.3.3 unicode.

    Hmm. I can't see the attachment file and there isn't an edit option for the ticket so I'll post it again in here.

    I think I got it cornered :
    1) Document contains /c , or possibly other / + letter. Example attached.
    2) Do a column select.
    3) Hit Bbackspace or Delete.
    4) Bug : Selection width changes to equal height, minus the deleted part.

    Workaround 1 : Hit space after column select, then deletes works fine.
    Workaround 2 : Do search/replace to temporarily scramble your offending / .

    I have the same issue with multi-line tab in Notepad++ 6.3.3

    See the animated gif attachment.

    1) I select multiple lines with ALT+SHIFT+arrows
    2) Then press TAB once
    3) Notepad++ makes the tab but...
    4) makes a selection too.

    alternate text

    If i make tabs in sequence, a mess is made:

    With multiple tabs in sequence
