I find it also annoying, and not in the line of how other software do
(e.g., Inkscape). In Inkscape if you press Ctrl while rectangle select it
will always add features to the selection, If you click over an element
(still pressing Ctrl) it will toggle selection on and off for that
An alternative could be:
- Using Ctrl would toggles selection on and off (the current behavior)
- Using Shift or Ctrl+Shift would add to selection;
