No

I use arch Linux now, and I have SciTE version 3.5, when I set
selection.multiple=1
selection.additional.typing=1
I can't enable multiple selection, when I press ctrl key, I can't even select a work with double click(can do selection with touchpad, but can't do multiple selection). By the way, I can do this on windows platform.

    See http://www.scintilla.org/SciTEDoc.html#property-rectangular.selection.modifier to set the rectangular selection modifier so it isn't on the same key as multiple selection.

      Yes, it works. A futher question, I think rectangular selection is a special case of multiple selection, why don't we combine them together, so, when we press ctrl key, we can do a new style multiple selection that includes both rectangular selection and old style multiple selection.

        Is the new piece of selection started with the Ctrl key going to behave like a stream selection or a rectangular selection?

          OK, I made a mistake. I was thinking about word selection only.
