Fast Select has caught me out a few times now, where i've accidentally moved or rotated the wrong object.
 My thinking is maybe it should be off by default, and easilly turned on by the click of a button.
 Shortcut keys are a cool thing, and going between a, m, r and s for select, move, rotate and scale, is still a fast way to go anyway. They're basics and well set out as they are.
 So i think fast select might be better for some people and operations, but should not be default, because could be tricky for learning people, like me..

have to admit i wasn't keen either; i disabled Fast Select pretty quick after it kept dropping things instead of moving them.

I agree, a button (like I mention in this post) and shortcut key would make this a powerful tool, especially when implemented for point editing and figure/sequence bone editing, but not as the default means of transforming.

Fast selection is only implemented in the object and figure editors so far.  The others are coming soon!

There's a bug that I haven't figured out exactly how to trigger, but it's happened more than once and I think ever since fast select's been implemented. Sometimes, after a bit of point-editing, it gets stuck in "select" mode and none of the tools work anymore in any of the editors. I don't know if this triggers only while in fast select mode, but after it's triggered it doesn't matter if in fast select or normal mode--none of the tools work. I have to restart Anim8or in order to keep working.

While I'm working on stuff I'll try to identify how it gets triggered, just figured I'd post here in case others have had the same issue.
