CTRL+drag defeats "add to selection"
Control dragging previously unselected item should only copy the item under cursor

Discussion thread

Reason for FR
When multiple items are selected, and one wishes to ctrl+drag a previously
unselected item, it is added to selection which is than copied as a group.
This is problematic when doing a lot of quick copying as it is very likely to
copy something unintentionally.

Similar implemented behavior
It already exists since OSX 3.35 version if you switch cmd for opt
modifier as it does not add to selection. This should also be available for
cmd (control) copying, possibly even being a default settings.

Can I recommend doing that GIF over again but with a theme that makes the difference between selected and unselected items really obvious? This animation makes it hard to see what's actually happening unless you already know what to expect. I voted "yes" because I run into this problem all the time but I feel like other people viewing this thread might not actually see what you're getting at because selected and unselected items look identical in your animation ;)
