How you select frames within a section while zoomed out?

Hey there, I have a usability issue with my product design frames. I organize them into sections, but I often need to rearrange or change the order of frames within a section. The problem is that whenever I try to drag select multiple frames at once, the entire section gets selected and moved. I’ve been selecting frames one by one, which is time-consuming, or zooming in to drag select them, but then I can’t see the whole screen. It’s quite frustrating.

Is there a shortcut or any other solution that would allow me to drag select frames within a section without selecting the section itself?

Have you tried holding Cmd / Ctrl while dragging? The only caveat is you need to fully enclose the frames otherwise the contents will be moved.


It’s that easy… Thanks!
