InDesign has two selection tools. The first is like the Scribus tool; you can select an object and move, resize, and do stuff in Properties.

The second is a "Direct Selection Tool." It is intended to let you select objects *within* objects; e.g. change the shape of a frame, select an individual element from a group, select a point on a path, etc. 

Perhaps this more general implementation would be preferable. At least it would be for me, as I can never remember complicated keyboard shortcuts.
