is there a way to change the key binding for rectangular selection from ALT + MouseClick to CTRL + MouseClick?
I'm working on Windows and hitting they ALT key means selecting the first item of the main menu strip of the current window. So when doing an selection with ALT + Click, it will select the area properly but after releasing the ALT key will select the File menu. If you then hit a key it will jump to a menu item in the main menu strip associated with that key.
So after I do a rectangular selection, I have to hit the ESC key first before starting to type the text I want to edit/insert/replace.
I didn't find anything in the key binding settings. Also there is a thread from 2011 stating funny stuff going on in KDE as well with ALT + Click:

It is not possible to change this in the current version, but I have opened a ticket for looking into if we can make it configurable.

Re: Key binding for rectangular edit
Just to inform you DbVisualizer 9.2.13 has just been released with the option to change key binding for rectangular selections.
Easiest is that you open Help->Check for Update in DbVisualizer to perform the upgrade.
An alternative is that you download from our web site:
Give it a test spin as we haven't had a chance to try it with Snowflake and let me know the result.
