is the same as
Mark, but the region manipulated by the
cut/paste commands is the rectangle having as vertices the cursor and the mark.
If you invoke
MarkVert with no arguments, it will set the mark. If you
specify 0 or 1, the mark will be canceled or set to the current position,
respectively. Moreover, a capital ‘V’, rather than a capital ‘M’,
will appear on the status bar.
For example, if you have the following text:
aaaBbbccc aaabbbccc aaabbbCcc
and you set a vertical mark at ‘B’ then move the cursor to ‘C’, you can cut or copy all of the ‘B’s.
If you have made a vertical cut or copy, it’s very likely you will want to
PasteVert rather than the usual
Paste to reinsert the text
in a rectangle. See PasteVert.
