Hi there!
     I believe so... Yes, that would help.
     I know i've seen manipulation of columns somewhere, and they 
(columns) are mentioned several places in the UI. Is this just a 
different term for rectangular selection, or is there more?
     And while I have you, I write more prose than anything in TM (great 
outliner!). Are hanging indents a possiblity? (Quite possibly not 
useful for your target market, but I thought i'd ask...) When writing 
todos or outlining, having the line wrap one tab stop indented keeps it 
very clear where lines start and end. (Happy to make a bundle, but 
didn't see how to tackle this one...)
