Enables drag to select mode Disables drag to select mode

These two icons let the user know if Drag to Select mode is enabled or disabled. If the box outline icon is displayed, Drag to Select mode is disabled and the user can use their mouse to navigate the canvas (zooming in/ out or left-clicking and dragging the canvas to see more adaptors). If the four-way arrow icon is displayed, this enables Drag to Select mode and if the user drags their mouse, it allows them to select one or more adaptors on the canvas to either copy or delete them.
