Selection of objects

Recommended Posts

Anyone having issues in selecting objects like doors, windows, cabinets in plan view (which is not locked), can sometimes select a wall but mostly get the rooms layer ( which I have locked) . It is a plan from a couple of years back, which I saved in X12 first then started the editing process. Very frustrating any ideas. 

Thanks

One idea is to read the Help menu on "Selecting Multiple Objects." There are a couple of recent features that will help you use a marquee to multiple select items without picking up extraneous types. For example, you can select a door and a cabinet, and then do a Shift-select marquee which will then only select doors and cabinets. There is also a Marquee Select Similar tool on the Edit toolbar which can be very helpful.

Thanks Richard, I use marquee often but this is something else, in plan view I try to select upper cabinet and I get lower and upper and everything else, try to select a door, I get the entire wall even if the walls are locked in ALDO. 

thanks
