- A new selection tool or keyboard combination that would let you select and deselect bricks only by clicking directly on them. Clicking anywhere else on the LDD window has no effect on your selection... all the chosen bricks remain selected.
- A group tool. Once you've used the selection tool, you could group the selected bricks together. When you click on the group, all the bricks within the group are selected. The only way to modify the group is to double click a brick contained with in the group, this would cause the rest of the bricks in the entire model to become ghosted and uneditable.
- A plane selection tool. One of the most annoying, time consuming things with LDD is having to tear apart a model or ghost a large number of bricks just to change a few pieces in the models interior.
4. Some kind of locking mechanism that prevents bricks from jumping about... that's probably not a very good description so I'll give an example. How ridiculously difficult and frustrating is it to place a wheel on a long axle or a brick on the underside of a plate only to have the wheel hub jump from the central hole to one of the six holes that surround it or for the brick to jump to everywhere but the one place you want it? I want some kind of keyboard combination that stops this frustration. The way it'd work is you either position the brick in a way that's similar to how you want it to end up (top or bottom of a brick that's already placed within the model) and then press and hold a keyboard button. Or, in the case of a large wheel with seven holes in the hub, you'd place the wheel on the axle, press and hold the aforementioned key that'd "hold" it on the axle and then use another keyboard button to toggle through the possible connection types.
