    Hi!

    I would like to select a consecutive list of items (photo's) in 'view as icons' but I don't seem to be able to do that. It is possible in 'view as list/coloms' by selecting the first picture, press shift key, select last picture. But when I try to do this in 'view as icons' I can only select the first and the last picture. All the pictures in between are not selected. Am I doing something wrong? It is possible in windows iview icons by using the ctrl and shift keys, so I was wondering if it's also possible in mac.

    Thanks!

    If you mean Icon view in Finder. Just draw around the ones you want with the curser

    It's a flaw with Finder. Finder does not see items in icon view as consecutive, so the shift-key trick will not work.

    You can hold command, then draw a box around or click on the items you want to select.
