This is a convenient function that allows you to set the behavior for when clicking or double-clicking on an item, such as "Highlight" during drawing check, or "Move Continuously" when you want to place components according to the Reference order,
and when you want to "Select" multiple objects and change attributes in the properties at the same time.

* By default, this is docked on the top-right of the screen.
