I'm looking for a gratis text editor for Linux that supports column manipulations/selection like the Notepad++ text editor for Windows allows.
Specifically, I want to be able to:
- Quickly and easily select a rectangle of text, even if that means going beyond EOL (End Of Line) for one or more lines.
- Delete the entire rectangular selection.
- Insert or delete characters at any column position.
The application must be a full GUI text editor, not a CLI line editor or text processor.
