I find quite annoying that it's impossible to drag-select multiple parts if you have the board displayed.The only way is to click outside board, which makes impossible to select a small group of parts in the middle. Even locking the board don't help, clicking inside it don't start the drag.
It would be handy to ad a "non-selectable" flag, more useful than the "locked" one.....
I agree this is a little annoying, but the workaround is just to hide the board layer (from the View menu). You can still see the board outline as part of the top silkscreen.
The background does become a bit dark to see the black silkscreen, though...
