This is actually exactly what i would expect, since the fill tool of drawing programms like paint or gimp work the same way.

I don't know about the shift-select tool but i wouldn't really be surprised that it behaves the same way as the fill tool.

Tue Mar 6 22:36:09 2012, original submission:

The "magic wand" selection tool (pressing shift while selection tool enabled) in the current editor selects hexes with the same terrain type only if they are connected, as shown in the screenshot. This is not very useful in this form and not mentioned in the description so it may as well be a bug.

Similarly, the "fill" tool also only affects areas of hexes of the same terrain type which are connected.

So, it would be nice if this worked for all hexes with the same terrain type on a given map even if they're not connected. Probably optionally, if the current way is intended.
