Add/Remove Elements to/from Selection

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello Everyone,

It would be nice to see a constant add to selection command, without the removal of already selected items if the selection box crosses them. Similar workaround with remove from selection, constant remove.

In a bigger selection set is a pain to deselect unwanted items. With a false click, you can easily invert the selection of items and the game begins, how to add back/remove the items if they are overlapping. In major 3d software, this is the normal workaround. With the SHIFT+click every time changing the object selection whenever crossed something just feels unnatural. Or is it just me? Let me know.

Best,
Adam

YES PLEASE!

The selection process really s*cks.The default behavior is indeed nefarious.

If I understand correctly, there is a wish for this already posted here.
I also added this feature to be included in my Model Filter View Option wish.
Cheers,

No, Braza, this is not about layers but about just selecting elements in plan, where making a selection a bit too large will actually deselect (I mean, wtf?) already selected elements.
