Selection Tools: Select via Origin or Mesh
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

The Select Tools Box, Lasso and Circle have a big difference in how they select Objects and it would be great to let the user adjust this.
Currently Box Selecting selects an object when the geometry is withing the drawn box.
But with the other two this is not the case. They select based on if the object origin is within the drawn area.
Having this behaviour as an option in the Tool Settings would be helpful.

Yes. Those options would come in handy when selecting components in edit mode as well.

I believe that this can be implemented with the distinction of direction in which the selection tools were executed. AutoCAD and Rhino 3D have this feature where users can select either only completely inside the selection area or anything that intersects the selection area. Left to Right triggers the first and the RIght to Left triggers the latter.
