    Select line (instead of one point) for filter action




      I want to be able to select a line in a line chart and have all the points that make up the line to be used as the filter for that Filter Action.


      Right now, the default picks the closest Point(Mark).


      A manual workaround is to click the line (which selects the closest Point)

          and then hold down the Control key while selecting all of the other Points on the line.

          This  is obviously  not workable if I have more than a couple of Points.


      Is possible to select all the points on the line?


      (Example attached)
