This was an unintended API change in Wing IDE 3.2.3. Version 3.2.4 will 
restore the original behavior. Unfortunately there is no workaround for 
this in Wing IDE Personal, other than downgrading to version 3.2.2. In 
Wing IDE Professional, a workaround would be to bind a key to the 
comment-block-toggle command. This can be done in the Keyboard/Custom 
Key Bindings preference.  While this also does not work the same way as 
it did in winning 3.2.2, it is a way to get ## commented blocks.
