For those who aren't familiar with it, you can hold down ALT and highlight many lines vertically making a very tall cursor, you can then start typing and what you type will be on all lines with the tall cursor.. thus you can very quickly and easily shift entire blocks over, or even fix something on many lines at once.  This is very helpful when you have something that used to be inline and now you want to make a procedure out of it for example.

The editor can just switch to a monospaced font when the
vertical/column selecion-mode is toggled, this is what Eclipse does.
BTW SynEdit also supports column selection, it's just not available in
the menu. In the Options Dialog you can assign key mappings to Column
and Normal Selection Mode.
