Concept Procedure
 
 
 
NoteThis procedure applies only to drawing objects.

To select drawing objects using Quick Select

  1. Verify that you have drawing objects in your map.
  2. Enter the QSELECT command.
  3. In the Quick Select dialog box, under Apply To, select Entire Drawing or the current selection set (if one exists).

    To select a group of objects to which you want to apply the filtering criteria, click Select Objects.

  4. Under Object Type, select a single object type if the objects you want are all one type. Otherwise, select Multiple.
  5. Under Properties, select the property to use for selection.

    For example, to find red objects, select Color.

  6. Under Operator, select the appropriate operator.

    For example, to find red objects, select Equals.

  7. Under Value, select the appropriate value.

    For example, to find red objects, select Red.

  8. Under How to Apply, select Include in New Selection Set to create a new selection set composed only of objects that match the filtering criteria. Select Exclude From New Selection Set to create a new selection set composed only of objects that do not match the filtering criteria..
  9. Click OK.

    In this example, all red objects in the drawing are selected. Objects that are set to BYLAYER and are red because the layer color is red are not included in the selection set.
