Re: Selecting a block of text.

Its on by default.  If it wasn't on, you'd know it.  Using screen review commands like numpad 8 for read current navigator position wouldn't be where you are when editing a document.  You probably wouldn't even be in the same window.  It can be found in what I believe is still called review cursor settings but I don't know how you get to that item in the new interface.
