Select Objects Problem?

This is a common scenario for me.

I want to select text over the WM & Dryer to copy to the electrical layer.

 

The room label & actual fixtures get selected first.

So shift select is not efficient because you have to jump through hoops to get the selection you want.

.
Similar problem when I want to select only the windows on the front of the house.

 

Do you really have to turn off all the layers and then turn on the target layers to accomplish this common operation?

For some items, you can select the appropriate tool first.  For example:

 

Select the "Window" Tool and then press the "Shift Key" and maquee select the Windows you want.  Only Windows will be selected.

 

This will work for Windows, Doors, Stairs, Cabinets, Walls, Fixtures, etc.

Same should apply if you select the text parent too first, then draw marquee around text and the text should be selected. This will apply too if you want to select text, electrical or a dimension line that is over another object. Hit that parent tool and it should select that item first.
