Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-06-19 00:49:23 UTC
If I have a block selection and hit tab, the effect is unexpected. I would expect it to either:
* indent all the lines
* replace the selection with a tab on each line

Instead, it clears the selection and converts it to a multiline caret.

In which version did that occur ?
(I thought I've fixed some block selection issues a while ago)

Anyways that is what happens for me with master atm:
