Select succeeding media on ALL tracks

I miss a very basic selection command in Camtasia (Win): "Select succeeding media on all tracks". Like the current "Select succeeding media", but it has to select all clips (on all tracks) that begin later than the selected clip.

Why I need this? Well, there are cases where you want to move everything that follows because you want to close a gap or insert some space to make one clip longer.

I know there are "Ripple move" features like a) moving an event while holding Shift or b) moving the cursor while holding Shift. Both don't really help in many cases because a) one clip in each of the tracks has to be selected first and b) it will split anything under the cursor. So if there are some overlapping clips those commands won't help much.

That's why I think there really has to be an easy and quick way to select "anything that follows" (start time >= selected media time). That's something I need every few minutes during editing and not just sometimes.

So I really hope to see a way to accomplish this with a new update (Camtasia 2019?). I'm currently using Camtasia 9. Please!! :)

Thanks for listening :-)

I made a little video to show how this feature looks in my favorite DAW Studio One:

Exactly what I need in the Mac version. Often I have a video track and then several other tracks containing various effects, callouts, etc. If I shift the video track in time, I need to be sure the callouts (which are already properly synced with the video) shift with it. Currently it's a nuisance to do this, and easy to mess things up. The proposed feature would make this easy. 

Thanks!
