Separately selected shapes example
In draw/impress when I select not side by side shapes at the same time, it looks like I selected all the shapes between them or they are combined.
What I expect to see is border dots of only selected shapes.
What I see is those shapes look like one combined shape.
In the attachment I selected the rectangle on bottom left and the ellipse.
They are not combined just selected together.
For me this sounds like a very good and reasonable enhancement proposal, because if you have three shapes and select the two outer shapes then it looks like they are combined and the inner shape is also "included" and then if you have more shapes which you want to select then you can't see which have not been selected.
Bug 74364 is about "Selecting multiple draw objects should show (unselectable) handles for all objects" which would solve this issue.
