Selection is a straightforward feature, as a tap means selecting a shape, but there are some features embedded that can be useful when you model.
💡 Note: Users who have started using Shapr3D before the 3.0 version will experience a slight change in this flow. 💡

The flow is quite simple. Selection works by tapping with pencil on the wanted sketch, closed sketch, face, body or edge! You can select multiple entities together.
Selecting a body
A single tap with the Pencil will select a face or an edge. Double tapping on a shape will select the entire body.
Preselection for Tools
Select shapes before you choose the right Tool. The app will know what to do and it will execute the command.
When you select any shape a selection info will appear on the bottom of the screen, giving you a list of measurements. To learn more about Selection info and what information you have access to, go to its own article.
Order of Selection
If you want to select sketches with other types of shapes, you have to select the different shapes (closed sketches, faces, bodies) first and then the sketches. This order gives us the ability to present the Sketch menu at the right time.
