Simple method to move text column to another (tab) position



  • Hello

    Is there a simple method to move multiple lines set at one (tabbed) position to another (tabbed) position. I mean to do this:

    Make this arrangement:
    1st Heading 2nd Heading 3rd Heading
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

    Into this arrangement:
    1st Heading 2nd Heading 3rd Heading
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    AAAAAAAAAAAA BBBBBBBBBBBBB CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
    ie. move column two n tabs to the right to align to the column heading.

    I’m hoping there is a simple way to do this in the column editing mode.
    Thnk you.

    to my eyes, both of your text samples look the same.
    please use ``` as starting and ending lines, and paste your notepad++ content in between them.

    example template:

    ```
    paste your code here
    ```

    your result will now look like this:

    paste your code here
    

    this will preserve all tabs and spaces you use.

    note: you will notice a panel to the right of where you are typing.
    this is your preview panel, which will show you in advance, before submitting, how others will see your post.
