    Could you give an example of what you want to do? It is not clear in this question I think you're looking for visual block mode but I'm not sure. EDIT: CarpetSmoker the Lucky Luke of comments was faster :-) – statox Aug 3 '15 at 13:35

Ctrl-V, then arrows (or hjkl) starts block/column selection mode - is that the feature you are looking for?
