#5643 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Missing "select only" mode

Description (last modified by Don-vip)

Current "select" mode is universal "select, move and rotate objects"

When I draw a rectangle, it allows me to select objects inside that rectangle.

However, sometimes I need to select objects in square in area clogged by many other objects - any attempt to draw a square to select the desired objects will cause some other object (which happen to be in the corner of the area) to be moved instead.

Some mode that will only select objects (and not move them) would be needed.

I think your need is very special and most users are be happy with the way it is now. I could imagine a modifier that does this, but select mode is already over-loaded with modifiers. (No - wait! Ctrl+Alt+Shift is still available. :) ) Maybe when scale and rotate is moved to a separate mapmode, the free modifiers can be used for this.
