Select Model Elements doesn't respect Ctrl-pick

Not sure if it’s always been this way or if I just noticed it, but I’m using the Select Model Elements node.
It only includes the elements selected on the first window pick.
If I use a Window Select and then hold Ctrl and pick more elements, the additional elements are not passed thru the node. This happens both in the editor and in Dynamo Player.

Is this “By Design”, or has something changed recently?

I think it has always worked that way, or at least I don’t remember it working any other way.

If you use the Data-Shapes package for controlling inputs you can use the UI.SelectModelElements Data node to select the way you are trying to do. You would need to use the data-shapes input forms though.
