When selecting multiple items in a model, only one item is indicated as selected.

How to repeat:
Select multiple items using CTRL-click. Drag some around. Note how only one is really selected, but all respond items selected are moved.

Suggested fix:
Clearly show that multiple items are selected.

There is actually a thin selection box around multiple selected tables, but it's not very visible, at least on my screen. Would be great to have the "resizer squares" on each of the selected objects to make it clear.

Great example of how this is done in Open Office (blue background)

Also, when selecting, this has different effects:
1. Select a table, then CTRL-click another one. Result: first table has "resizer squares", second table has thin line.
2. Click on an empty space in the model, CTRL-click table one, CTRL-click table two. Result: both have a thin line, none has "resizer squares".

Example of how it could look using the Open Office blue background look (great!)

My proposal for this bug:

#1 Implement blue background (same color as open office calc uses) [Feature Request]: this way nothing needs to change, the selection becomes much clearer and it looks good too
#2 Fix the selection issue listed in [5 Aug 13:17] [small bug]
