More efficient selections

Issue #63 new

created an issue

I want to select a component, and I click, and command-click, and command-click, and dozens of clicks later, I have the right component. Even with airwires turned off.

If I click too fast, it misses the thing I wanted to select, and I have to start the cycle over.

I don't want to drag a rectangle and select because that often selects too much.

Possible solutions:

1) cmd-shift-click to go back selection sequence 2) KiCad-style: if you select a layer by clicking on it in the layer list, it will start with objects that are on that layer 3) Components have higher priority in the sequence

    Aaah I just realized that I can search for the component name and that selects it.

    Here's one more suggestion: when I click on a component name (label), that component gets higher priority in the cmd-click sequence.

    Added a smarter (prioritised) nearest-selection to v0.7.7. It may still need some tweaking. Also added cmd-shift-click to cycle back in the selection sequence.
