standard selection hot-keys in list view


Recommended Posts

Across almost all (well-designed) windows products there is a standard way of selecting things in a list:


click - select current item (loses selection on all previous selected items)

shift-click - select from first selected to current item, losing any selected items outside that area

ctrl-click - leave existing selection alone and select (or de-select) the current item

ctrl-shift-click - select from last ctrl-click-selected item to here, leaving existing selection untouched


EN does pretty well at all these except the last. When I try to select several items with ctrl-click and then several in a row with ctrl-shift-click it fails out on me, acting just like a ctrl-shift.


SUGGESTION: operate according to universally recognized windows hotkey standards when selecting from list view
