Using Quick Select to Select Drawing Objects
Concept Procedure

You can use Quick Select (QSELECT) to select drawing objects based on their object properties (such as color), object types, or object classification. You can also use Quick Select to exclude drawing objects from a selection set.

For example, you can select all of the red road objects in a drawing without selecting any other object, or you can select all objects except the red roads.

When using Quick Select to select drawing objects based on color, linetype, or line weight, first consider whether these properties are set to BYLAYER in the AutoCAD layer definition. For example, an object may appear red because its color is set to BYLAYER and the layer color is red.
