Window selecting

I have a drafting background, but with Autocad depending on how you drag the window it selects only whats within the window, anything that is extending outside is not selected.

When you drag the window the other way it selects all in the window and selects all that the window intersects even outside the window.

Its very handy if you want to mass select a bunch of small items but not spacer bars or anything thats between the text. but if you want to select everything like the bars and text you drag your window the other way.
