Bug(?) in rectangular edit

Hello everyone, When I try to edit a block of text using the rectangular area edit (Alt+Click), I get strange results when selecting and typing (thus overwriting characters). The characters seem to be inserted at random positions, but not at the place where the area was selected. I am attaching 2 screenshot: 1) selecting a column of characters 2) typing the letter X --> X gets inserted at random positions (first and last row are correct) When I select the last column of a block, then the characters get inserted at the last position correctly. Can you reproduce this? I am using version 9.1.7 pro Thanks Raik

Re: Bug(?) in rectangular edit
Hi Roger, unfortunately I just found another bug in the rectangular edit. This time it involves copy and pasting: Here it how to replicate it: 1) Copy one or more characters (Ctrl-C) 2) Select a column in front of a text block 3) Paste it (Ctrl-V) The result is, that the pasted characters overwrite the first character in the first row of the text block, and every first character in the subsequent rows gets removed. Please see screenshots attached.

Re: Bug(?) in rectangular edit
Hi Hans, there still seems to be a glitch in rectangular edit. If you select multiple columns and hit a key, it replaces all characters except of those in the last line. Interestingly that only happens if you select from top right to bottom left and vice versa. It works when selecting from top left to bottom right and vice versa. Can please have another look at it. It attached 3 screenshots.
