[Feature request] Improved drag to select


#1

It’s frequently difficult to select multiple objects that either extend beyond the screen or sit on top of others - there’s lots of shift clicking. Drag and select only helps if you can enclose entire objects.

In several CAD programs (including AutoCAD) it works like this:

  • Drag from left to right to select all objects that are entirely enclosed in the selection rectangle or lasso (window selection).
  • Drag from right to left to select all objects that are crossed by the selection rectangle or lasso (crossing selection).

(see: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad-lt/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2015/ENU/AutoCAD-LT/files/GUID-243E4DD0-8947-4905-AFE2-BE9B903A8C3F-htm.html)

This would be great to have in Balsamiq.

Hi @rynooo,

Thanks for getting in touch about this.

Interesting idea, I’ve added this request in our internal track so the team can review and discuss it for the future.

Thanks for sharing this one! :smile:
