Searching For and Selecting Features
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

Use the Search command in AutoCAD Map 3D to find and select features in your map based on their location or properties.

A search specifies a set of conditions (also referred to as criteria or rules) that must be true for a feature to be found and selected. A Search can have one or more sets of conditions. You can search the entire map (for example, across multiple feature classes).

For example, you can find just the roads in Shanghai within a circular area you specify. To do this, you specify criteria that limits the results to road features whose City field is "Shanghai" and within the a circle you define.

NoteTo find data in a single feature class based on a single property, you can also search to selectin the Data Table.
