Description Maciej Pilichowski 2008-04-24 18:51:28 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 3.5.9)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

When you select such text


it is clear what you selected. But if you start to select this way


there is no visual indicator what is going on. Please show the vertical line -- 1-2 pixels wide just user would see there is selection.

It would be useful also when you switch often back and forth from normal to block. When you select the latter case in normal mode you see the selection -- but not in block mode.
