ALT+SHIFT to select a rectangle of code

Every now and again I rediscover a tip when using Visual Studio, this time I was in SQL Management Studio but the tip is the same nonetheless. If you want to select a column of text (in my case it was a column of periods) then hold down ALT+SHIFT and move your mouse. It may not seem very useful now but I guarantee you’ll need it at some point!
