I haven't access to a Mac, whatever OS version. There may be a specific problem with the modification keys.

I don't know a way to do multiselection without the mouse.

I can confirm for Win that the ways described in the source linked to the second variant in the OQ are basically still working.

There may have changed some (LibO) version dependent details concerning the effects of a second or further Ctrl+Click under specific circumstances. Negation of previous selection? As far as I can tell negation only takes place if the action starts with a selected cell or with a completely selected colomn or row. The start decides whether the action, subsequently touching previously selected and unselected cells as well, will persistently perform 'select' or 'unselect'. A distinguishing persisting 'negate' seems not to exist.

Hope you find specific answers concerning the Mav OS versions.
