Bug Description

In Nautilus I can drag and select multiple files only in icon view and in compact view, but not in list view. It could be very useful if you make files selectable only clicking on the file name (column width), so you could drag from the space of the other attributes (dimension, date ...).

"This is a new feature, not a trivial usability fix, so it is not considered a paper cut."

"Implementing the rectangular select in list view would involve writing and testing new code. I agree that it would be a great fix to make, and it affects usability greatly, but it requires new code, which is what I mean by it being a new feature. It's not a feature that you would advertise if you were selling Ubuntu, but it is a feature nonetheless."
