I can enter the block edit mode using Shift+Alt+A in Eclipse. For Notepad++ they recommend

push down the Alt key then select the block you want with the mouse (without releasing the Alt key).

This way I can copy a block indeed. But how do I paste the clipboarded block? What the hell?

Ctrl V as per normal? – Darius Oct 9 '13 at 11:47

The problem is that you cannot paste in block mode unless your text was copied in Notepad++ also in block mode. You cannot simply copy it from another app and paste as per block mode. Paste your text in Notepad++ first, then copy it using Alt+mouse and paste again. This time, it will be pasted as the block, at desired location.
