Why can't LR do this?
« on: August 04, 2010, 08:00:07 AM »

When selecting (checking) photos to import, I would like to be able to select a group of photos by selecting the first one, holding down shift, and selecting the last one - this is pretty standard in Windows. But no, it seems I have to select each one individually. What gives - am I missing something?

I am using Mac, and it works, so I think it should work on Win too...

Select the photo rather than the check box, then shift click the last photo you want, then tick one of the check boxes of the selected photos this checks them all. Hope you follow that!
