Select villagers from multiple places doesn't work in AGE2DE (worked in AGE2HD)

How it worked in AGE2HD: Drag mouse over a group of villagers in one part of the screen. Move to another part of the screen by scrolling or clicking on the minimap. Press and hold CTRL key. Drag mouse over another group of villagers. The result was that both groups of villagers became selected into a single group (NOT related to control groups).

Issue in AGE2DE: The above that worked in HD doesn’t work in DE at all. Performing the same procedure using mouse clicks works but performing it using mouse drag doesn’t work (unlike HD). It is impossible to select villagers quickly and efficiently because of this.

Please fix this.
