Hi David,

I don't believe Column Sensitive Editing was available in version 5.0
5.0 is  a very early release of the product and you should really upgrade
to a more current release, as there are many fixes (including some for the
SEU prefix commands in LPEX) and enhancements.
You should be able to order a refresh of the product to get the latest

Merci :-)

Thanks a lot for all the responses, I have learned a lot.

A couple of things :
I couldn't find Column sensitive editing anywhere. I'm on V5.0 in French
I need to know the exact path to find the box to check. Pasting with
C moves everything right.

Alt Z : everytime I use it, the selected block increases in width by one

C in the margin followed by OO on the start and finish lines only copies
over the first line, which is why I was using SEU.

My prefered method is to select the block with Alt R, and type block fill
: I noticed that I can select the block, hit escape which brings me to
command line, hit the up key and select my las block fill commande.
as fast as SEU !!!!

Objet : Re: [WDSCI-L] Paste in LPEX for RPG

I use a similar method for commenting blocks.  If I need to comment a
large number of lines, but some skip some, I use the block select as
detailed by Adrian, and then the Selected > Overlay with Selection
(shortcut Alt+Z).

Start by commenting out a few lines manually.  Then rectangle select >1
lines of *****.  I usually try to guess the smallest block I'll be
commenting at a time - usually two or three lines.  Then, you can
down to the next block you need to comment, and hit Alt+Z, repeating as

1.- The OO command should work in LPEX as well.

2.- Paste should also work.  Ensure you set "Column sensitive
so the original lines are not shifted right.

2.- In LPEX you can select a rectangle block (Alt+R at each of its
diagonally-opposite corners), then Esc to go to the LPEX command line
and enter:

   block fill *

or alternatively, after the rectangle selection was done, right-mouse
click to bring up the pop-up menu, Selected > Fill selection > *.

When we comment out blocks of code, we use "*****"  in column 7.
I can't do this efficiently in LPEX. Instead, I have to leave
LPEX, open the member in SEU, create a line with **** and copy this
line over the lines of code with "OO".
This is totally ridiculous. There must be another way.
