Is there a way to reverse select items?

I wish there were better ways to be able to select a few items.  Specifically, I would like to be able to select a few items out of a larger group then be able to drag the mouse selection box over the group and have it select the new items and un-select the previously selected items in the mouse selection box.  Kind of like the "Invert Selection" choice from the Edit menu, except only acting on the mouse selection box instead of the entire screen.

Right now the closest I can get to this action is to select the whole group then click on each item I want to un-select with a "Ctrl+mouse click" This is tedious and sometimes frustrating, when I am having trouble getting the mouse to click the right item.

If there is not a current way to do this, consider it a feature request.

yes that is one of the most frustrating changes from previous versions and other software I was used to. I tried holding space bar, shift, alt and other buttons.
I learned that holding the spacebar while 'circling' things groups and ungroups objects seemingly randomly and the results are rarely repeatable.
What is that called anyway, when you left click, hold, drag and select either one or a group of objects? Highlighting, I've heard grabbing, selecting, lighting up, etc.

Todd,
 Unfortunately I don't know of any way to select items in Enroute in that specific way. It something we can mention though as a feature in a future version. 

Best Regards,
Aaron
