Though I agree that the extra keystroke for small selections (2 or 3
items) is not ideal, there are two reasons why I much prefer Extended:
- in Multi mode, adding long lists is *very* tedious (1 click per item
- users are so used to Extended from other applications/environments
(including MS Windows) that anything else tends to confuse them
