Because I never found it in 1.x either. Tapping ALT just never occurred to me. HOLDING ALT or some other control key often did things, but tapping was outside my limited box of tricks.

It's not obvious (at least, not to me...) that tapping ALT is the way to do it, and it's not the kind of thing you can figure out by experimentation.  I looked all over for how to make a column selection in TM2 and finally found it in a blog post.
