I keep having difficulties because I select more than I want to. It
seems that the components extend out beyond the lines that form them.
Could we fix this behavior?
Some ideas that might help:
1) Make it possible to select multiple items by shift clicking on each
one, and make the selection toggle. This would allow me to get rid of
the component that got selected that I didn't want, or perhaps to not
select it in the first place, because now the only way (I know) is to
drag a box around the components I want.
2) Make the area for selection be only inside boxes that denote the
component or on the lines that make it up.
Each of these ideas would help, and possibly both would be good together.
What do all the rest of you think?
