LW>B: painting point selection with order preseved for Merging?

One thing I really dislike about Blender is that the “select points by painting” tool doesn’t preserve point selection order, which LWM did. This TMK makes for a very clicky experience when trying to Merge points.

Am I doing it wrong? It seems like the only Selection tool that preserves point selection order is the Tweak tool, which IMO is dumb.

Like I suggested numerous times, show what you actually want to do. It could be that there’s a simpler way.

And no, the Tweak tool is not a tool that preserves selection order. Click selection is what preserves selection order.

I understand that: I just think it’s really really lame.
