Using Quick Select

When editing a drawing, often the task of selecting the objects to change is more work than the actual change itself. This is where object filtering becomes crucial to your work. Imagine having a convention center drawing where you need to change the layer and color of a circle with a radius of 12". Now compound the problem by increasing the number of circles to be changed to hundreds and the layers they reside on to include nearly all layers in the drawing. Zooming and panning around and selecting these circles among other circles and layers would be a huge task.

With the Quick Select feature, this could be done with one visit into the Quick Select dialog box and setting the proper parameters. In Figure 11.19, you see the standard settings for the QSELECT command dialog box.
