Have it your way; it didn't work for me. It can be sort of duplicated with
Selection->float but that is certainly not as convenient as the old system
of just dragging the mouse and as far as I can tell there's no way of
editing the mouse functions in the same way that keyboard shortcuts can.
Since I use the click-drag a lot when working on websites, an extra
twiddle with an extra menu is a nuisance and 2.2 remains the better choice
for me especially as I also do a lot of cropping and I need to see the
ratio as I select the area to be cropped. I've just re-installed 2.4 and
confirmed that this is simply impossible now, whereas it was part of the
default display on 2.2's crop tool. That's a clear step backwards by any
rational measure of usability, and if you can't see that then I'm at a
loss as to what is going on in your mind.
Thanks for your time anyway.
