Column selection extends over wrapped parts of lines #10234
According to the thread https://discuss.atom.io/t/vertical-column-selection/15913/7 we can do a column selection. On Windows, I can use Ctrl-Alt-Up / Down do extend the selection vertically.
Soft Wrap is not enabled by default, no.
As to the rest of the idea, I think your suggested behavior would be counterintuitive. Can you cite any other examples where text or other data would be inside a selection but not selected?
