I'm using the PowerApps Web Editor on my Mac v10.12.6
Chrome Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit)
In Tree View
I can no longer group elements when using control + left mouse click
I can only group elements by selecting the elements on the canvas or by switching to the preview view.
I'm not sure when this changed but
I used to be able to hold down the control button then left click individual elements in Tree view of the Screens panel to select them for grouping, now a context dialog pops up with Copy, Delete and Rename but it will only allow you to select one element at a time.
I can still however select each individual element on the Canvas, it was easier to group from the Screens panel, due to the fact that you can't lock elements on the Canvas. Which if you have a lot of elements you could accidentally select an element by mistake.
This is still posible to do and this is how I do it.
Maybe you can post a screenshot where you are unable to select few emelemets from the tree view?
Here is what I did:
1. Click several items in the tree view while holding Ctrl
2. Right click and select group.
This used to work for me as well but now each Control + left mouse click produces a new popup and deselects the prior selected element and No Group option is available.
Finally recieved a brand new mouse but the behavior is the same.
It's probably some setting on my Mac that was changed, I'll keep investigating.
Thank you for your help.
I'm also having this issue. Can't ctrl select ellements in the left pane. I'm using a Mac and Chrome. KC did you manage to figure it out ?
I changed the mouse but no luck. I'm still unable to select multiple elements from within the tree view itself, but I can at least ctrl+left or ctrl+right click , or left click then drag the mouse to create a bounding box to select multiple elements at a time on the canvas. The dialog still pops up but I've learned to work around it until I can find a solution.
If you use the left click drag technique, the popup does not appear but some unintended elements may get selected in the bounding area.
