Test CTRL-Drag border select in the experimental Key Map

The CTRL-drag to select, like it is implemented in BfA 0.9.6, is a great option to keep the default hold and dragging of objects and have the option to select quickly with a shortcut.

However would suggest to change the lasso select to the box select, sice it is faster to just drag from point to point instead of going all the way around the objects that need to be selected.

It would be more efficient to use "CTRL-Left hold and drag" as border select, "CTRL-Shift-Lhad" as border deselect. - The same shortcuts in combination with ALT can be used for the lasso select instead.

 

CTRL-LeftClickDrag = Border Select

CTRL-Shift-LeftClickDrag = Border Deselect

ALT_CTRL-LeftClickDrag = Lasso Select

ALT-CTRL-Shift-LeftClickDrag = Lasso Deselect

I am down for that. Most software have box select right up. Lasso select is really handy also. CTRL+R click is apparently free, so that could be the lasso. CTRL+Lclick box, CTRL+Rclick lasso? I'm not a fan of triple combo hotkeys.

Draise, you need to finish the keymap so that we can start with the experimental keymap Wink

CTRL+Lclick box, CTRL+Rclick lasso, might be interesting to test indeed. Less keys to press.

Part of the experimental keymap. This one relies at the official full keymap. And this full keymap does not exist yet.

Postponing.
