I think this is essential and I am not sure why Ai doesn't have it.
I like to select some shapes in a group of shapes that are not grouped.
For example in attached file, I like to drag and select only the shapes that are fully enclosed in the mouse drag area.
I don't want to select the objects that only a portion of them are in the mouse drag area.
Inkscape has this option and is extremely handy.
That is strange, we have all kinds of selection tools but lacking the very basic selection!
