    Reading this back after i've posted here several years ago.
    I really cannot see why, after all these years (!), this function is still not reality. It is such an obvious improvement that it's hard to see for me why this is so overlooked. Is it hard to implement? Is there not enough demand? Is it expensive?

    Illustrator is great, but selecting objects in the more complex drawings often is such a hassle. Worst of it: it's doesnt have to be like that.

    It should be done as in Oleg Krasnov's gif. Maybe in the opposite direction so that the standard way of selecting still remains untouched. Make left drag do the magic. Fine with me. Also a toggle switch in the settings would be great, so that it can be made persistent.

    Either way, this way of selecting should become possible.
