First click point for a Section Box

The two points of a selection box should be points in space.

 However on a busy section of a model I find it impossible to find a free bit of space for the first click and as such an element invariablely becomes selected and then is moved with the second click if not pinned down.

Is there a key that I can hold down (to indicate that a point in space click is required) when clicking the first point of a selection box and therefore avoid making a selection until the selection box is complete?

Try unchecking the press and drag check box at the bottom right of your view. This will prevent you from grabbing an object and dragging it without starting a command.

I've just worked out one answer. Holding the Shift button (ie in de-selection mode) does the trick.
