Block grouping but not with a rectangle

Is it possible to group components for dragging by not using the usual mouse graphical rectangle thing, but with something like control-click or an equivalent method? Being able to select a group of footprints and mode them would be very useful. Thanks.


Switch to the OpenGL view ( Menu > View > OpenGL ), which is poised to replace the legacy default view.
SHIFT+select works there.

Wow this is nice! Thanks. Is openGL less stable though?

There are no stability problems.
Not all features are available in OpenGL yet, but you can switch back and forth (F9 / F11) to the old canvas so it’s not an issue.
