How can we improve Power BI?

Click and Drag to Select Multiple Objects and Allow Nudge

Similar to the other Microsoft products, it'd be great if we could click and drag the mouse to select multiple object on a page. Then, once multiple are selected, allow us to nudge them with the arrow keys all at the same time. Right now, we have to click one at a time and nudge one at a time. Oftentimes, I have many items I've already spent time aligning and then I need to nudge them and I have to do it one at a time.

    WOuld like to have a SELECT ALL on a page for objects or draw an area (like PowerPoint) and select all the objects within that area.

    You can click on one, hold the CTRL and click on all the others that you want, after keep all selected, you can click on one of that and nudge, all the visuals selected Will be moved too
