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:

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.

Re: Key binding for rectangular edit
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.
