Chapter 10. Basic Object Editing > Assembling a Selection Set

Assembling a Selection Set

Many of the editing commands start by displaying the Select Objects: prompt. The Select Objects: prompt signals the beginning of the process in which you can assemble a selection set by selecting the desired objects using a variety of methods. Most of the selection options covered in the following list are invoked by typing a letter or two at a Select Objects: prompt. The typical selection process is open-ended, which means that you can invoke any of the options listed, as many times as you want and in any order that you want. When an object is selected, it is highlighted on the screen as a visual confirmation. To finish selecting objects for any given command, you can press the Enter key or spacebar, or just right-click on the input device. Then you will pass the selection on to the current command that is active.

Note

The highlighting of objects is enabled by default. You can control this feature with the HIGHLIGHT system variable. However, some third-party software may disable the highlight variable when a routine is canceled. The HIGHLIGHT variable is set at the command line: With a setting of 1 it is on, and with 0 it is off.
