VHDL, Verilog, SystemVerilog for Visual Studio


V3S | Coding | Block Selection Mouse



How to Access

Default Shortcut: Alt+Mouse
Action triggered by shortcut


Pressing Alt while selecting code with the mouse uses the very handy block/column-selection mode.


Block selection is a standard feature of Visual Studio and nothing specific to V3S. It can be triggered by holding the Alt key while making a text-selection with the mouse. Alternatively, when working with the keyboard only, hold Alt, Shift while using the Cursors to make a text selection. You can then block-edit the selection, which is a very useful feature for VHDL. Take a look at the image for an example.
