Create a schema with lots of tables.

Reverse engineer them without drawing a diagram.

In model overview choose schema tab

View items as list:

Try to select more then a single table ... try by using ctrl or shift.

=> It won't work you just can select a single table

View items as small icons:

Try the same => it behaves mad ... 
Try to select all => won't work

View items as large icons:
=> this works better but you still won't be mark the first and then try to use shift, scroll down and get all ... tables in first column won't get selected.

How to repeat:
See above

this problem is originated in some quirk in the gtk tree control, where a simple click always generates a new selection. so when you want to drag multiple objects (in linux version) from catalog-tree to the canvas, you need to:
- click first item in tree
- hold shift and klick last item (don't let go of the shift key)
- stay on shift-key and start dragging
- release shift-key before you release the mouse-button to successfully drop selected objects onto the canvas

(same goes for the Ctrl-key when selecting multiple non-adjacent elements.)
