I would like to be able to hold down the CNTRL key and then whatever is touching the box that i drag across with my left mouse button is selected without having to drag the box across the whole object.

hidden layer

moving a selected shape with CTRL-key duplicates the selected shape.
Or did I misunderstood you?



Why not use the lasso select?

Alternatively, in the options there's a point that says something like "Select shapes that are partially in the selection box".


I highly doubt that M$FT will improve anything in Visio desktop in the near future. At best something will appear in version Visio 2525, but we will never know.  ;)

There was a branch in our Russian forum: Line selection a-la AutoCAD

If you do not want to wait long, try the solution proposed in this thread.
