    This is a great idea. I would also like to select a variety of stuff this way to delete or batch edit. Thanks!

    Or if possible not actually delete them but be able to group them and have them not visible on the map and also be able to make a group that is not visible on the map to make them visible.

    Just the ability to select any item (waypoint, road, track) that is inside (or touches) a selection rectangle would be very useful in organizing data that has been created or imported. For example:

    If I am preparing a trip, i add a bunch of waypoints to the map, some routes, maybe import something from trailsoffroad etc. Of course I'd like all these to end up in a folder "my may 2022 trip" etc.

    I can either tediously move each item manually to that folder. Or, preferably, make a rectangular selection, get all selected items on the left hand sidebar, select all, move to folder.

    I totally agree we need a rectangular selection tool for selecting multiple waypoints and tracks on gais .com is necessary  similar to what you can do in garmin mapsource program for windows

    there is a workaround for this in Gaiagps .com  but it's really janky and frustrating .

     it gets very tricky if everything that you want is very close together

    sometimes it doesn't work at all if you wanna try it

    simply hold down control key

    select the first waypoint all other features will Gray out

    keep holding the control key

    then carefully zoom and  select additional waypoints or or tracks one after another being very careful not to click off the features or you will lose what you have selected all the items that you have selected will be visible and not grayed out  you must click on the exact correct point

    I would recommend doing this in small batches that way you don't have to start over from scratch again

    the waypoint list will appear in the left hand sliding menu pops out  but it shows all waypoints and not just the ones that you have selected which sucks

    once you have a selection made select add to folder in the sidebar create or use an existing folder

    good luck with this
