I’m working on desktop version of a site (1366 px wide) and have faced usability issue during selection.
The physical efforts for wide elements selection is too high. Please look at the GIF, where I need to select dividers in the list:
- I need to travel too long with the mouse to enclose the elements into selection (multiple clicking on elements to select them requires much efforts)
- The other elements are occur in my selection, so I need to exclude these
Possible solution is to implement a mode, where elements become selected on touching the selection rectangle, see the image below:
The frame is locked, so it doesn’t become selected.
In some tools this mode is activated while
ALT is pressed.
I hope, I’m not the only one who struggles with the issue.
OR may be I missed something and there is some trick to solve my problem?
