I am not able to select multiple object, even when I hold shift or ctrl while dragging. I changed my keyboard to U.S standard but still not able to select multiple objects. Am I the only one who is encountering this bug ?

Thank you

Yes I am getting the same behaviour shown in the video.

EDIT TO CLARIFY: I can select multiple objects, but when I hold Shift to add to that selection everything is instantly deselected, and the new marquee also selects nothing.

I experienced this in an earlier Beta, but had convinced myself the problem went away.

It hasn't! Something is very broken!!

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Shift Invert Selection behaviour no longer works) of the program in the latest release.

The fixes and how to update are described in these forum posts.

We would appreciate you checking that this issue has now been resolved for you,

Still having the same problem in latest stable version This drives me insane!!!

Is there something I should do after the 1.8.3 update? I see people saying this has been solved but I still experience the problem even after the latest update.

Just holding Shift and drag in the same artboard works... but if I hold Ctrl+Shift+drag and want to add additional elements to the selection from a different artboard it doesn't work.

Any help would be great. Thanks!
