I’m watching this and … he is able to select objects  and I am not.

is he not telling keyboard option on how he is selecting multiple options at once?

I am not able to select more than one at a time.

@Debra Snook -

In general, there are two ways to select multiple items:

  1. Use the left-mouse button to click & drag a selection rectangle around a bunch of objects. 
  2. Left-click on one object and then shift or CTRL-click on others

Is this not working for you?



I do not use a mouse <ever>  / mac 

any keyboard instructions?

  1. Pressing F1 while on a board
  2. Going through the board Settings menu
  3. Or in the following Hep Center article:
