By default keyboard navigation with arrows keys and shift modifier will move the current cell and extend the selection. Without Overriding is it possible to have the current cell remain the same but extend the selection.

There is not a simple way to do this, but it can be done without deriving the grid.

In the update Vol 2 refresh release due out this week, there is a new sample in the Formulas samples that does something like this. It is attached. In that sample, if you click on a cell, and start typing a formula like =Sum( and then click on another cell that is at the beginning of the range you want to sum, you can use the arrow + shift keys to extend the range, and it does this without change the current cell where the "=Sum(" is. So, the selected range is being extended without the current cell being changed.

I will forward this request onto the development team so support for extending the range without changing the current cell might be done through a simple property setting instead of the work done in the sample.
