Allow mouse drag selection box

That 'click drag' selection box would be mighty handy for selecting multiple notes at once.

I don't know how the program was put together, so that might be a lot harder than it sounds, but a margin might still have merit. The area could also be used for highlighting notes forum style, with symbols and color coding or whatnot. Also, I'm recommending a separate column for this instead of the note titles, as there are times where a user might want to select text across several notes, titles, timestamp and all. No need to complicate that.
Anyway, the drag box isn't really an issue. Shift and Ctrl clicking is far more reliable. It is just that those old habits...
However I'm not dismissing your idea: actually such a "title sidebar" could be made not so narrow, and it could come in very handy for things like task checkmarks, alarms and other note flags. Actually it has been done so a long time ago in NotesHolder (and QuotePad), which in some way inspired CN.
You may also note that I pretty much disregarded this whole idea as unnecessary and mouse drag functions as unreliable in the final paragraph of my last response. Considering that this is all about a program called CintaNotes, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that succinct writing is not my forte. I like words and language a bit too much. Pity not everyone feels the same.
