Description

The Std BoxSelection command selects objects from a user defined rectangular area, a box, in the 3D view.

Usage

  1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Select the Edit → Std BoxSelection.svg Box selection option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: Shift+B.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Drag a rectangle from left to right to select objects whose geometric center lies inside the rectangle.
    • Drag a rectangle from right to left to select objects whose bounding box is (partially) inside the rectangle, or touches it.

Notes

  • Use the Std BoxElementSelection command to box select faces instead of objects.
  • This command cannot be used to select elements in a sketch. To 'box select' when the Sketcher Dialog is open:
    1. Make sure that no command is active.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • Click in an empty area and drag a rectangle from left to right to select objects that lie completely inside the rectangle.
      • Click in an empty area and drag a rectangle from right to left to also select objects that touch or cross the rectangle.
