Click-and-drag to select multiple patch cords?

Is it possible to click and drag to draw a box over a group of patch cords, and thus select all of these patch cords?

It gets old real fast, shift-clicking each patch cord…

I’m trying to pick apart the “F1″ explanation of the zigzag~ object so that i can understand it… unless there’s something i’m not understanding, this explanation seems like a real snakes’ nest mess, very difficult to understand where the patch cords are going due to the way that they’re layed out…

ok i figured out the zigzag~, it was just the positioning of a couple objects that made it confusing…

still wondering about the original questions about selecting multiple patch cords with click-and-drag…

Press the alt key while selecting. You’ll find most of the editing
tricks in the Tips patches from the Extras menu.

I would also recommend the Reference Manual. It’s THE documentation,
the answer for every questions.

Also you can Hide Foreground, then all your patch cords are visible and you can option-click-drag over them to highlight multiple ones.

Option-drag highlights objects *and* patch cords, regular drag highlights just objects.

Simpler solution, which I do all the time:
Hold option key, drag over the area with the patch cords you want to select. All the connected objects are selected too.
Release option (and mouse), then hold down SHIFT key and drag over same area. All objects are deselected and cords are left highlighted.
