Does VS Code support selecting columns of text? I have not yet found this feature so I am wondering if it is hidden somewhere. I am familiar with holding down Alt while selecting text but VS Code does not behave this way.
I just published an extension for Visual Studio Code that converts a multi-line selection into a column selection. It mimics TextMate's
Toggle Column Selection command and serves as an alternate approach to VSCode's commandoptionshift + arrow keys that I find more natural to work with.
As of VSCode 1.2 they have full column selection, see https://code.visualstudio.com/docs/editor/codebasics#_column-box-selection
