    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!

    Thanks for the update. Having to tap a key before every selection activity is still dumb and unacceptable. Why not just do it right, with a persistent toggle in settings? Other vector-art applications have managed to pull this off for decades. DECADES.

    By the way, thank you for soliciting input, Adobe reps. But this implementation is so brain-dead that you're going to have to expect scorn for it. I hope you guys read this and do the simple implementation we asked for.

    Very disappointing. #2 is especially clueless, literally, since it's undiscoverable except by accident and will produce bafflingly inconsistent results by accident. If a user's art makes dragging up from right to left more convenient once in a while, the application will behave differently for no apparent reason.

    #1 requres the user to press and hold an extra key over and over and over, every damned time he selects something in the app. This is THOUSANDS of tedious extra presses per project. WHY? Other vector programs simply have a toggle in preferences to make this the DEFAULT selection mode, and have for DECADES. Corel Draw, Inkscape, Affinity Designer... it's so easy.

    You should be able to toggle the mode, and make Option-drag use the other one. This is all we need, and would have been even easier to implement programmatically. Why wasn't this done?
