Is there a way to select several shapes with a mouse, without selecting them one-by-one or picking from layers?

The problem: there are several shapes on the page, I'd like to select some of them in a rectangular area and move them somewhere. The only way to do it that I found is cmd-click each of them, which takes time. Am I missing anything else?

You can also Shift-click layers in the Layers sidebar to select each layer between the currently selected one and the one you Shift-click. Drawing a selection over objects on the canvas isn't currently possible but would be a nice feature to have — in fact, it's already on the feature request list.

Awesome, glad to know it's on the feature request list! Selecting objects in layers is quite hard, if layers are not logically arranged in groups and there are quite a lot of shapes on the canvas.
