vim mode currently lacks Ctrl-v style column select. Is this something that codemirror is capable of at the moment? Is it blocked by issue #778 ?
This isn't possible with the current built-in selection model. It might be workable for the vim mode to keep its own selection, but that's probably going to get messy.
Closing this. We can revisit when/if a serious multi-cursor implementation happens.
Looks like multi-cursor support is available now. Time to revisit blockwise selection? Can we reopen this issue?
Ah I lost track of this issue. Actually, blockwise selection is mostly done. Just working out the bugs now. Try it out at http://codemirror.net/demo/vim.html
Oh, cool. FWIW, pasting a blockwise yank is a little different from the behavior in vim, but glad to see it coming along!
Yes, that's being fixed in #2751
