The Box Selection tool is used to select a group of performers by dragging a selection box around the performers. Unlike the Pointer Selection tool where whole shapes are selected, the Box Selection tool is capable of selecting portions of a shape. When using the Box Selection tool all performers that are included in the boxed area (drag region) are selected.
To select the Box Selection tool, click on the Box Selection tool on the Tool Palette.
With the Box Selection tool selected, clicking and dragging a boxed region around the performers will select the performers inside the drag region.
Holding down the [SHIFT] key while dragging the boxed region around unselected performers adds the performers to the selection. Likewise, holding down the [SHIFT] key while dragging around selected performers removes them from the selection.
Clicking on the field but not on a performer clears the selection.
