Subject: Re: [Kicad-developers] eeschema selection appearance
This looks like an improvement on v5.1, anyway. Thanks!
A side request if you're looking at the selection code: I would really
appreciate it if selections were included in the history buffer and could
be added-to and subtracted-from incrementally. It would make working with
selections much easier!
A related thing - if you make a selection and then try to perform an action
on it, and then cancel the action (e.g. because a dialog appeared warning
you of some condition), it is frustrating that the selection is cancelled.

I'm on the fence about the text highlighting, on the one hand not doing it
does make it so the text is still easily legible when selected, but on the
other it can be nice to show that it is part of the selected symbol. I
think this would definitely be a case where making it a configurable option
would allow people to experiment and see what they prefer.
