Summary0000142: No single click to deselect control points?
DescriptionA suggestion. When using both DoomEd and DR,

1. clicking control points on a patch selects them, one at a time
2. shift-clicking adds to the selection
3. rubber banding is possible with shift-drag
4. ctrl-click does nothing (apparently)
5. a single click of an unselected point will select it, and deselect all others.

What I find issue with is 4. and 5. together. Ctrl-click should be individual select toggle (this is standard selection behavior), and only ESC should clear all (also, pretty standard behavior). 5. is a major crippling annoyance since the first time I ever tried to work with patches. If you are selecting in top down view, for instance, just a few random points among a web of many, because you wish to make them all into bumps or valleys, you do so by clicking and rubber banding. Fine. Then, you rotate your view to a side view, and click to drag the control points up or down to make your valleys or bumps, right? Wrong. Your single click has now DESELECTED everything you picked to adjust. Because of a poor, nonstandard selection method. If only ESC cleared all, and ctrl-click was to selectively toggle, this would finally no longer be an issue.

If what I'm describing here isn't clear, just let me know and I'll throw something together (map or images or whatever).
TagsNo tags attached.

Should be fixed.

Patch vertices can be toggled by Shift-LMB (as standard in DarkRadiant) and the current vertex selection does not get reset by left-clicking on a non-selected vertex (it's added to the selection instead).
