I am struggling to find the best UI for contiguous row selection. Each row comprises of a start time, text and an end time.
Do you think click and SHIFT + click is still a valuable option for non IT users in 2016?
I have also tried a checkbox on the left + start time, and one checkbox on the right + end time (for each row). This seems a good solution but takes too much horizontal space.
[x] 00:00 | a sentence | 00:10 [ ] [ ] 00:10 | another sentence | 00:15 [ ] [ ] 00:15 | a sentence blah | 00:23 [x] [ ] 00:23 | another one.... | 00:40 [ ]
Bear in mind that the table is scrollable, thus for example I can hardly see a drag and drop vertical slider as an option because of this fact (but correct me if I am wrong).
Any idea is welcome here.
