just to add: the shift method is very unconfort in everyday use: as we all know, holding the shift and clicking the line or text in autocad de-selects that entity (yes, I know it can be changed, but it is ok - this issue appart).
Now, due to the speed of working, approx 20% of selecting of blue squaers results in missing the sqare and clicking on a label, which ends up de-selected. And now I have to click 2 more times on it to select it again and make it red.
4 clicks to make it red... Just for one of that 20% squares. The others still need 2 clicks. Or preselection of multiple labs, but that brings up another issue that probably needs a tread of it's own (the position of the lable attaching points - often it is too close to some other part so you have to pre-select the lable to mark the belonging element...)
Am I the only one out there with thoughts that label stretching needs a little improvement? All the other users are happy and satisfied?
p.s. - I realy don't understand the logic: for example, you can move all the selected labels as far as you want, the end point can be far from the element it is labeling, but you can't stretch it...
