can't live without any more

whenever i have to work with boring final String[] - Arrays, created by pasting parts from documents (Excel-Sheets or something like that), this little tool is absolutely usefull to me, and i really like it.

Strange but works

You can't really see your rectangular selection... just make a normal selection and this plugin's operations will treat it like a rectangular selection. It looks like you are selecting entire lines, but really only the starting and ending points of your selection matter because they define the corners of the rectangle. Simple to use but hard to explain... just try it out.

Difficult to use

This plug-in adds several menu entries under Edit->Rectangle to cut, copy, paste... as well as a toolbar with the same options. But it's not clear how to use them since there isn't an obvious way to create a rectangular selection in the first place. And, nope, Alt+Drag does not create a rectangular selection.
