Please bring back some sort of "Select" Mode

What I’m requesting:

Select a component with a keyboard shortcut + click. Classic Apps has this and it was one of the best features to build quickly.

Why I’m requesting:

Severely slows down the building process for screens that have many components.

Supporting information:

This was an open topic that got closed prematurely: Component selector in Pages (Play/Select mode)

Here’s what I’m after:

I really don’t think it’s an ‘enhancement request’ to request things we’ve had all along. I have greatly missed this ‘feature’. It really is hamstringing development. It is missing in Classic Apps as well.

Voted! This is super needed :pray:

Awesome! Keep the votes rolling in! :ballot_box::white_check_mark:

My current workflow is to scroll through the components until I see the item I want highlighted.

Being able to click and edit (again) would be amaaaazing.

SO inefficient…and when you have a screen with a dozen containers worth of components— an absolute nightmare.

Thanks! But how it works?

I do not see this in the Preview section:

Yes, Beta is enabled, but i can’t select components on layout.

You need to reload editor page.

You need to first click the rounded “Selector” icon before being able to select layout components.
