When selecting items in a list, we can click to select the first item, then use Shift+Click to select another item, then all consecutive items are selected.
If we want to select more, we can select them individually using Ctrl+Click, but not select any more ranges.
This seems odd to me in that the Shift+Click functionality was added specifically to avoid having to individually click many items. But, after Shift+Click is used once, its benefits are lost and we have to revert to tediously clicking individual items once again.
Why can't Shift+Click be used multiple times to select multiple consecutive ranges? Could we not just:
- Press Shift+Click again, select the start of the next range.
- With Shift+Click held down, select the end of the next range.
This could be repeated ad infinitum, and we would still not lose the ability to pick out individual items using Ctrl.
Am I missing something?
