Block selection mode vanished in KWrite in OpenSuse 11.4

Previously, I often use(d) KWrite for some simple text manipulations since it had:

  1. block selection mode;

  2. could display the line numbers;

  3. assists in programming texts.

Now I recognized that in OpenSuse 11.4 KWrite does not have block selection mode anymore :frowning:

Looks similar to the “upgrade” of Panasonic GF1 to GF2 (and now G2 to G3) cameras after which the microphone socket vanished >:(

Any suggestions ?
