Thanks, just what I needed!
Glad you found this useful! 🙂
If you select the mesh in the outliner tree, I think you should use Ctrl-Click and not Shift. I tried – with Shift it selects also all objects in between the two you wanted to select. Ctrl-Click selects only the ones you click on. However, when clicking in the scene, use Shift-Click. Blender can be so confusing with these inconsistencies…
It simply doesn’t work for me. It selects all bones at once and none specifically.
