The fact that Shmeppy doesn’t have multi-select is very embarrassing to me honestly . It’s the most frustrating part of Shmeppy I encounter when I’m GMing. I’ve definitely had the thought “how does anyone put up with this?”
I think that this interface your describing would be fine if tokens was all I was worried about selecting. But I’d like to allow moving any of the map objects at once so I’ve got a design for a dedicated multi-select tool pretty well solidified. (When the multi-select tool is selected, each other tool will have an essentially-checkbox next to it that’ll let you decide which layers you want to grab). And I don’t really want two ways of accomplishing the same task.
I do have a hunch that multi-select will be the thing I immediately work on after I’m done with subscriptions. But that’s probably not too comforting given that I’ve been working on subscriptions for the past half year/forever .
