what we need - and it's been something that has been brought up over and over again - is the 'C' (construction method) toggle to be activated for both the arrow tool and the marquee tool selection methods.
whilst not a 'construction method' in the strict sense of its use in all of the other tools, it's not a great leap to see 'construction' as an 'arrangement' method for these tools.
'G' and 'C' - i would imagine that they are the first two single key shortcuts that users learn . . . it can't be too hard can it graphisoft? . . . although there's more chance of djordje and tom reading this than the guys in the red fortress . . .

Yes - I stopped short of saying that. Only because they'd need to change the tooltip and probably the help menu/reference guide from selection method to construction method, and I figured that'd just all be too much!
