Is there an easy way of selecting the text in vertical? Something similar to the action described here.

Why am I asking it? Because I would like to fix the indentation of an entire section in a couple of easy steps. I would prefer to avoid the option of selecting line by line and fixing the spaces every time.


I don't know of that feature in TeXstudio, i know it from UltraEdit. And there is the column mode in notepad++ (free), maybe that helps for a one-time use.

But if you want to fix the indentation, you can do that just by selecting the lines and then press Tab. There is also an indentation command in the idefix menu. If the indentation should be space instead of Tabs, this can be set in Options->configure->Editor "Use Spaces for tabs" (or something, i have the german setting enabled)

If you want to indent text in the line itself, that's another question. But that could be done via macros something like "Tab, move down, move left, tab...."

  • +1 it is not an answer to the question but it solves my "indentation" problem! danke sehr – Leos313 Aug 8 at 9:03
