Barry, yes, TSEdit does block copies. And No, I do not think it support's Vi's cmd structure.
I'm pretty sure Phil is referring to the Coco 3 Patched TSEdit for OS9, originally named "Vi" then renamed to "Vim" (as Gene stated), since he is running a Windows machine and using VCC.
The Vi docs linked may not help at all and he would actually need the TSEdit manual which is in the archives.

Since many CoCo users are also Unix/Mac users who do CoCo program editing and development under Unix using vi I sent you the link. I am not sure if tsedit, tsed, or vim even support marking blocks as it does not implement the full vi command set.-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
