Not sure if this is considered a "bug" per se (though it's certainly unexpected
behavior), so I'm submitting it as a "wishlist" item.
Let's say I have a table:
| Foo | Bar | Baz |
| fee | fi | fo |
| ent | orc | elf |
I'd like a printout this table, but I only want to print the columns "Bar" and
"Baz". So I move point to the beginning of the "Bar" column, run C-x space
(i.e., rectangle-mark-mode) and select the two columns. I then run M-x
The expected behavior, at least for me, would be Emacs printing what I had
selected, but instead it prints everything between point and mark, as if I had
used C-space instead.
The obvious workaround is to yank the selected rectangle into an empty buffer
and print that, but I am lazy :)
