    So much for Adobe's rental model, which was supposed to fund bug fixes like this.

    This has been requested for over a decade.

    NO MODIFIER KEYS. Make this a selectable preference, period. That way nobody is offended.

    Better yet: Make the default mode selectable in preferences, and have Option toggle to the other one. As noted already, Shift is not viable because it's already used to add or subtract from selections.

    Customers have been asking for this for well over a decade, but Adobe has abandoned Illustrator. Most people have moved on to competent, maintained applications like Affinity Designer (which offers this mode by default).

    Sketch is also growing in popularity, and offers this mode; it, however, does only offer it through a modifier key. Changing that limitation is an outstanding request in their forums.

    Corel Draw uses this mode by default, if I remember correctly.

    Face it people: Illustrator is abandonware.
