It's surprising Illustrator has not adopted what is standard issue across other CAD softwares — AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino 3D. Left-to-right drag only selects objects entirely enclosed inside the selection marquee, right-to-left drag selects all objects crossed and inside the selection marquee.
It becomes second-nature very quickly and would return a lot of time deselecting points and lines as collateral.Alasdair Tarry supported this idea ·
