This is a neat trick that I found the other day. If you use TextEdit for writing down notes you can vertically select characters from the body of text. For example, if you have a list of items that is well organised and neatly lined up, a mini table or sorts, you can select all of the items within a column. This is a great way to edit items that are directly underneath each other. To edit these items simple hold down the option key (between control and command) and then select vertically.
