This is the twenty-second in a series of blog posts I'm doing on the VS 2010 and .NET 4 release.

I've already covered some of the code editor improvements in the VS 2010 release. In particular, I've blogged about the Code Intellisense Improvements, new Code Searching and Navigating Features, HTML, ASP.NET and JavaScript Snippet Support, and improved JavaScript Intellisense. Today's blog post covers a small, but nice, editor improvement with VS 2010 - the ability to use "Box Selection" when performing multi-line editing. This can eliminate keystrokes and enables some slick editing scenarios.

[In addition to blogging, I am also now using Twitter for quick updates and to share links. Follow me at: twitter.com/scottgu]

Box Selection

Box selection is a feature that has been in Visual Studio for awhile (although not many people knew about it). It allows you to select a rectangular region of text within the code editor by holding down the Alt key while selecting the text region with the mouse. With VS 2008 you could then copy or delete the selected text.
