Is it possible to change the SELECT function and the select function of the DELETE command ?
At the moment you can draw a frame/box from every direction and only the elements which are fully included in the frame are selected.
I would like to propose to preserve this feature for a frame/box which is drawn from left to right.
If you draw a frame/box from right to left all elements which are partially in the selection frame would be selected.
Like in acad and similar programs.
Maybe with old behavior on/off
Advantages:DELETE command: Faster cleanup of imported drawings. For exemple hatch transformed to lines SELECT function: New opportunities for the queries with INQ_SELECTED_ELEM
If INQ_SELECTED_ELEM SELECT P1 then 4 elements are found,
if INQ_SELECTED_ELEM SELECT P2 then only 1 item is found
and it is random which element is selected.
I would like that all the elements are selected which are located at P2.
Comparable to "Probe Selection" in Modeling
With verion 18.1 you have control, if the box-selection selects only totaly include components or also components hit by the box. Just click the Tab-Key and you can toggle at any time during box-selection. Btw. Select has got a lot of improvements in the version 18.1. Vistit the enhancement details page at http://www.ptc.com/appserver/wcms/relnotes/note.jsp?&im_dbkey=135065&icg_dbkey=826
for more information
I removed the category Modeling, since this type of functionality is part of Modeling Version 18.1 already
Thanks to you for the information about modeling and the correction.
