[Lazarus] source editor: block commands don't work in Trunk v1.3

I'm using Lazarus 1.3 r42869 FPC 2.6.2 i386-win32-win32/win64 and tried
to do the same thing that is possible with EditPad Pro. "Duplicate text
as you type" [http://www.editpadpro.com/trickduplicate.html]. This is
actually a very handy productivity tip.
I tried this in Lazarus but it didn't work. I thought it was maybe the 2
stage keyboard shortcuts that are causing a problem. eg: Ctrl+K,B
So I updated my keyboard shortcuts and added secondary shortcuts
matching what EditPad Pro has. Ctrl+Shift+B for Begin Block,
Ctrl+Shift+E for End Block, and Ctrl+D for Duplicate Block. I made sure
I have no shortcut conflicts.
The editor commands I modified are:
- set block begin
- set block end
- copy block
Still, the blocking commands don't seem to work in Lazarus IDE. So have
these blocking commands maybe been broken for some time and nobody noticed?
As a side note:
This is probably not important. In my Windows 2000 system, my default
keyboard layout is United-States Dvorak. But as far as I know, the
Dvorak layout has never caused such problems. After all, a shortcut is a
shortcut, no matter what keyboard layout you use to type that shortcut.
