The only ways to select by area to batch update attributes on polygons are to select by polygon or free hand draw a polygon. Otherwise, you can select one polygon at a time (dot symbol). We really need to be able to select polygons the SAME way that you use the regular Select widget. I want to hold down the shift button so I can select polygons that are not adjacent to each other. We have folks spot treating exotic plants in the field and when they use the WAB, they want to be able to multi-select polygons that are spread out miles apart from each other and apply the same information to them.
