    I have two questions regarding using the Grid with touchscreen devices such as an iPad. I see that I can press and drag to select multiple consecutive rows of the Grid, but how can I select multiple, non-consecutive rows (i.e. the equivalent of holding Control + clicking rows)? 

    Second, if a grid is taking up a large portion of the view port and I want to scroll down the page, when I drag my finger, it wants to do the multi-selection of grid rows instead of scrolling. I tried dragging two fingers instead but that didn't work. Is there a way to scroll down the page when the grid must be touched on to begin scrolling?

    Hello, Jesse,

    Regarding the questions:

    1) Currently, this could be achieved by using our new checkbox selection feature:

    https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/grid/configuration/columns.selectable

    2) This could also be achieved with the checkbox selection as the standard selection will take presence over the scrolling and all scrolling gestures will be taken as selection:

    I hope this is helpful.

    Regards,
