I don't know about 6.1, but in 7.0, this would only take a couple of property and invoke nodes using scripting stuff, so if you really need it again...
Just yesterday I had a VI which simply would not run, it crashed LV each and every time. After copying the BD to another fresh VI, it worked. I wished I had the "select all" option there.
"....to prevent me from indulging in extravagant diagram expansion."
You are still LV 7.0, is that correct?
Have you seen the "Auto-Explode", ahem, I mean Auto-Grow option in LV 7.0 and above? You can now abuse the LV style guidelines without resorting to "ctrl-shift-drag". You think your diagram is "just right" then you re-name a control to include the units...
As an addition to this nugget, for LabView 7.x Ctrl-D does a similar trick only it performs the last distribution operation performed from the "Distribute Objects" button.

Nice ! Thanks Darren !By chance, may be you know about some hidden shortcut to align wires ?
An excellent question, I've wanted this numerous times myself. I don't know of a way to do this though unfortunately.
On one hand it's good, because if you drag a selection around some stuff and want to top-align it all, you don't want all your wires smushed up along the top pixel of the selected region. However, it seems like if only wires were selected, the operation could be applied to the wires.
