first of all i am using a trackpad - this might work differently with a mouse i am using lion - maybe apple changed/fixed this in mountain lion? in icon mode i am aware that you can hold down CMD and then highlight multiple icons or click individual icons to make a selection/deselect files in list view, i basically want to use shift and select a range of files, skip over a few files and then use shift again to ADD more files to the selection in a range. e.g. select A-D with clicking A, then holding shift and clicking D to select everything from A-D, skip E-G select H-L (using shift and CMD, NOT individually clicking H,I,J,K,L), etc. - in list view any solutions? or am i doing it wrong?
