How do I select multiple items that are listed together in the Outliner? For example, have a look at the image below: if I want to select from B to G without having to shift-click on everything in between, how do I do that? For example, in Finder on macOS, you can select multiple items that are listed together: click the first item, then press the Shift key and click the last item. All items in between are included in the selection. Is there a way to achieve the same thing in the Outliner?
The selection method you describe is now implemented in Blender 2.81, together with Ctrl-left-click selecting (Cmd on a Mac), to toggle between Active and Unselected states for individual items.
B Box selection is also available, as in the viewport: left-drag to select, middle-drag to deselect.
