  1. Hi, It seems that when I try to select objects on the artboard I need to drag to around the entire object in order to select it... I think that in any graphic software I worked with before, it was sufficient to select only a part of the object so this UX seems very strange. It feels more like a bug or maybe something I need to change in the preferences. any help would be appreciated. (I just bought Affinity designer to give it a try so if there something i missed sorry for the spamming)
  2. Adobe's Illustrator defaults to what I'd call Partial Coverage Drag Select whereby anything covered by the Drag is selected, regardless of the amount of coverage. CorelDraw defaults to what might be best called Drag Select Coverage of Whole Object to Select. One way of having both in the same app without shortcut keys is to use dragging right as the default, and dragging left as the other. So Click and drag either up or down to the right, and Whole Object coverage by the Dragged Selection Area works. Clicking and dragging to the left (either up or down) results in anything touched by the dragged out area being selected.
