Can't group into network

I am just getting started with Nodebox 3 and really liking it so far!

Now I am facing the following challenge when I am trying to create a subnetwork: I am on a MacBook with a touchpad. After selecting all the nodes, I am right-clicking with ctrl-mouse-click on one of the selected node. Problem: This deselects all the other nodes and when I am selecting 'Group into network' from the context menu, only the node that I have clicked on is used to create the subnetwork.

Any idea how I can solve this issue without purchasing a mouse with two buttons? ;-)

    I'm on a similar machine, and I can see the problem with ctrl-clicking. I am using the two-finger-tap for right-clicking, which works fine & keeps the nodes selected. Is that an option for you?

    It might be a good idea to add this (and other) options to the "Node" menu. I've added an issue that tracks this:
