When editing a Feature, why can't I de-select a face?

When editing a Feature, why can't I de-select a face?

For a few years now I've been annoyed that I can never unselect a face from a selection I've already set for a feature (i.e. Fillet), without deleting the entire selection of faces, edges, etc.


It's annoying because sometimes I'll have dozens of features I want to keep and only one or two I want to de-select.  


For example: I simply want to de-select the large blue face, but I can't, so I have delete the entire selection and then re-select all the other sixteen features that I want to keep:

Am I missing something or is there just no way to do this?

Holding down the Cntl or Cmd key, 

allows deselect and reselect, may not work for all cases.


Might help…..

Ha, you'd think after working in CG for more than 20 years I would have known that! 


My defense is that when you start a feature you just click on features to toggle selected/deselected, so I assumed the same functionality when editing a feature.  Kinda weird to have to use the Control key in this instance, but hey at least it works. 


And yes I feel dumb that I didn't try that already 🙃
