Rectangle mode will allow you to click and drag to select all seats under the rectangle. Using this mode will de-select any seats already selected unless you hold down the SHIFT key.

Paint mode allows you to click and drag your cursor to 'paint' over the seats that you want to select. This allows you to pick up seats over a curved row more easily. Again, you will need to hold down the SHIFT key if you want to add to any seats already selected.
