Thanks for a reasonable feature request.
You can find out the current support ones, (and consequently make a list of all missing ones) from the editor-options => Key-bindings => section for block selection.
ALT is not handled as a modifier or "magical add on to selection". So it doesn't automatically enhance all selection-moves.
There is a reason for that. Depending on your platform and window-manager those key-bindings could be used by the system.
For Example some Win-Mgr uses Alt-Ctrl-Left/Right to switch virtual desktops. Lazarus would never see the KeyCombo being pressed.
Therefore the User must be able to assign/change each of them individually. (And maybe other default need to be chosen)
Until this is implemented, those selections can be easily made in other ways.
1) Select the word in normal selection mode, then continue the up-down selection with the alt key => the normal block converts into a column mode block
2) You can assign Key combos to switch the default selection mode between "normal" and "column". Once it is column you can use all selection moves/commands (without alt key) and you get a block selection.
Thanks for your precious information.
By the way, I remember and read again your statement in this issue:
"As for Gnome or Windowmanager that have their own Alt-Key handling:
It should be possible to use Meta(Windows-Key)-Alt-Mouse. This was
already possible before."
Therefore, for some Window Manager you mentioned above, I think the use of Windows-Key should be implemented as a solution for any conflicting Alt key bindings.
Key commands for this have been created.
No defaults have been set.
