Re: To be able to select files using mouse like in previos nautilus versions.

True, experimental views was enabled, and that was the problem, i hope this experimental views don't end in main code if the mouse stuff to select is not fixed.

HI i mean ubuntu 18.04 nautilus version, sorry for not to mention, but let me guess... is hapening in all nautilus versions for the last 2 years at least.

In nautilus now (i think in ubuntu 18.04 is 3.26 installed) you can select two files in the same row... but the "slection square" that was there in nautilus before that you can select som files in multiline is gone.

So if there are lot of files is impossible to choose some of them with the mouse, you enf clicking in one file because there is no empty spaces between files in icon mode.

This is because of the change to make each file a square, so there is no empty space between files (in icon mode view) so is not possible to choose files with mouse.

If you could clarify what version you refer to as “now”, it would help
everyone involved understand your problem.

Have you enabled experimental views in preferences?
