Used to be able to select multiple items by drawing a box around items - why has this feature disappeared?

When trying to multi-select various items on the board I can’t draw a box around them like I used to be able to?

 

Alternating between the cursor and the hand doesn’t make any difference - using the cursor it changes into a hand anyway.

 

Was this feature purposefully taken out? It’s really annoying

This still works for me using Google Chrome on a Windows 10 PC - I make sure the Select cursor (arrow) is being used, and then Shift-Click and Drag to select the objects within an area.

Thank you!  I wasn’t using the shift … you just made my day.

A heads up for all: The only time a click-and-drag with a mouse will select a number of objects without holding down the Shift key is if you are in Trackpad Navigation Mode.
