Indenting block selections

Is there any way to indent/unindent block selections made by pressing the Alt-key and dragging the mouse (generally by using tab/shift-tab)?
When I make a block selection, the indent menu option is grayed.

>the indent menu option is grayed.

Where it's grayed out? You can use tab/shift+tab for block just fine. Also auto indent lines works like charm: Ctrl+Alt+I (View | Auto Indent Lines).

Hi

Sorry - I meant column selection rather than block selection.  
Basically in PhpStorm (7.1.1) if I select a column of text and press tab, it doesn't indent it further, it removes it.

Here is the column being selected (in blue):

Here is the column after pressing tab:

When I have selected the column the "Indent Selection" item on the Edit menu is grayed out.

If I do a normal selection of text everything works ok but column selections don't seem to support tab indenting/unindenting.  Unless I've missed a configuration option?

Thanks
Chris
