Recent PC to Mac convert switching from Visio to Graffle. Here's something I'd like to be able to do and I'm hoping there's a way to do it I'm just missing...

* I'd like to be able to click and hold and select only those objects surrounded by the lasso / selection box.

* Right now, If I click and hold, then select multiple objects, all I have to do is to touch them and they're selected. This includes underlying objects. For example, if I have 3 little boxes on a big box and I just want to select the little boxes, I'd like to just lasso them all rather than Cmd-Click each one. I could use layers for this, but that seems cumbersome.

Visio allowed for this; in fact is was the default. It's the one thing I kind of miss. Anyway to do this? Some key combination or mode I'm missing?

Thanks for any suggestions.
