Maxim Casas, a developer who recently started contributing to Blender, has committed a patch improving the functionality of box selection in the curve editor.
The patch adds the expected behaviour of selecting a curve once it is box selected, where previously this was not an implemented feature. The patch adds a total of four behaviours when it comes to box selecting curves, described as follows by Maxim:
- Box selecting a curve selects all the keyframes of the curve.
- Ctrl + box selecting of the curve deselects all the keyframes of the curve.
- Shift + box selecting of the curve extends the keyframe selection, adding all the keyframes of the curves that were just selected to the selection.
- In all cases, if the selection area contains a key, nothing is performed on the curves themselves (the action only impacts the selected keys).
