  1. Select inside marquee window

    Create a toggle-able feature like the one found in many CAD programs:
    Select ONLY the objects ENTIRELY inside the selection window marquee via the following methods:
    1. hold Shift+drag
    2. Dragging left-to-right enables "select inside", dragging right-to-left enables "select touching" (as per most CAD programs)

    The latest Beta 28.3.0.47 introduces several changes to the Enclosed Mode.

    Now, instead of Opt/Alt, the mode is controlled by 'E' key (to avoid conflicting with the established modes).

    Now, you need to tap 'E' ONCE after you start the marquee to toggle the mode — no need to hold it all the time. The mode will be active until you release the marquee.


    There is no option to toggle the mode permanently at the moment, the team is evaluating this. So far this is the only mode that can be toggled in this fashion.


    This mode works for both Selection and Group Selection tools, and hopefully behaves as we expect it to.


    Please test it and post your feedback!
