      Description

      It's very confusing how the column selection works in data prep:
      1. Clicking the name of the column should select the column
      2. filtering the column then selecting all or none should only select the columns shown after filtering. currently it selects all columns.
      3. it isn't clear that the "column actions" have nothing to do with the selected columns. choosing either of them apply to all columns, no matter which one is selected.
      4. it isn't clear why selecting columns is useful at all. How does a user know they need to select a few columns, then move to a different frame and find the hidden directives menu, then apply that directive to those selected column
      5. Holding shift and clicking a second checkbox should select all the rows between the columns.
