Q.How to select texts vertically in notepad or word documents without selecting whole text?

Have you ever think of it ? Just look at the image at right and you will know what i want to say. Do you know how to select the texts vertically without selecting the whole document ? Imagine how much time it will take to select the text vertically (say if you have to give the multicolor to a paragraph ? )The TRICK is, place the cursor where you want to select the text. Then hold down the ALT key and drag the mouse by pressing the left mouse button horizontally and then vertically to select the desired text. Blah !!! Now you can select the text vertically without selecting the whole text. Now color the selected text. Repeat the process, if you want to give it multiple colors. My intention is that, not only to give the paragraph a multicolor however you can apply any formatting once the texts are selected. Imagine you have to create CV for 20 peoples. After creating one CV, then you can apply the same technique to remove the corresponding data in a real quick as the left sides of the CV remain same as Name, Address, Qualification etc and the right side data changes.
