Block selection in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2

The Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 code editor introduces a new interesting feature, known as Block Selection, which allows selecting and editing code portions.

If you experience this problem, don't worry; it is of course possible installing the off-line documentation later. Select the Manage Help Settings command in the Help menu within Visual Studio: The Help Library Manager will run; from here you will be able to install the documentation, for example selecting Find Content On Disk:   This last option requires the availability of the installation media for Visual Studio.
