On the company graphs windows, you can click to select or deselect a company. In most areas where that function is available, Ctrl-click selects or deselects all companies/industries/whatever except for the one clicked. (e.g. on the minimap)
Any reason not to make that feature available everywhere?
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Flyspray clean up, this is a very broad issue, and doesn't have any viable way forward currently, so closing. Thanks :)

It's not implemented :)

You assume there exists a systematic approach to the GUI interface functionality.
There is no such thing; things get changed/extended on an ad-hoc basis for each window separately.

The current GUI is organically grown to meet our needs. If you look carefully, you'll notice that different windows use different styles, and interact with the user in different ways.
Some attempts have been done to improve things, but nothing reached the point of maturity so far.
