Alt+Z to paste/overlay....

I do the Alt+R to select a rectangle block, and then use Alt-Z to Paste/Overlay the block...

One of my co-workers still use SEU, because she can cut and paste a block with a mouse...

She had used RDI for a few months, but has sense gone back to SEU. Because it is simpler...

I can only lead them to RDI, I cannot make them use it... <Big Frown>

Question: You list Alt+R for rectangle select. Is there such a thing as rectangle paste, or is Alt+R only useful for deleting blocks of text?

btw, thanks. Great guide. )
