    This happens to me too.

    If there is multiple objects inside of a rectangle with no fill and I attempt to select all the objects by dragging a box around them, then the rectangle is also selected IF my box goes around where the centre of the rectangle is. You know on the bounding box how there is a square in each corner and one in the middle? If you drag the box around where the middle square would be for the rectangle then it gets selected. I don't know what that middle square is even for.

    I'm on Illustrator 25.0.1 for Mac and I am fairly confident that it still worked properly in v24.x.

    Anyways, it's annoying having to do the extra step of deselecting the rectangle, but it's even more painful when you don't notice that theres an extra object selected and you make changes to it only to have to roll them back and deselect.

    It's absurd to change such a fundamental behaviour which has existed since at LEAST CS5, but to change it and not have a setting to revert back, is unconscionable.

    If I wanted the rectangle selected, i would simply drag the box slightly further to include it in the selection, it couldn't be any simpler. I can't imagine any scenario where this change in behaviour would save anyone a measurable abount of time or effort.

    Whilst it may seem that Adobe is ignoring this topic, in fact, some of the latest versions of Illustrator appear to have some multithreading capabilities for certain tasks. I noticed when I applied a blur to a vector image with 1000s of complex paths by mistake, the app became unresponsive, so I checked Activity monitor and Illustrator was utilising all 4 cores. I tested some other tasks like saving a massive file and 3d filters but they still only used one core..

    "between Intel and AMD the challenge is who produces processors with fewer nanometers and more cores .... who 10 cores, who 12, who 16 cores .... "

    technology advancements are fuelled by competition in the marketplace, the problem with illustrator is the only real competition they face is piracy, so we have a application with 12 different adobe background binaries running before you even open illustrator! If adobe put as much time into rewriting illustrator for multithreading as they do into battling against adobezii.com with EVERY SINGLE REVISION.. then it would have been completed years ago!

    Pirates gonna pirate, is it really worth all that effort to have the latest version uncrackable for that two or so weeks before it is cracked again? Maybe if they earned the $79/month they're asking for, more people would choose to pay it.

    Will we finally get multi threading in the ARM version of Illustrator for MacOS 11?
