You can select any geometry in a selection box by clicking any area in your design space with your mouse or trackpad, and dragging the pointer across the space. Depending on the direction you drag the pointer, the selection type changes:
- Drag the pointer to the right to select geometries that are completely included in the selection box.
- Drag the pointer to the left to select crossing geometries—objects that aren't necessarily contained in the selection box, but cross the box's boundaries.
Once you make your selection, you have the option to filter the selection based on item type: "All Items," "Bodies Only," "Faces Only," or "Edges Only." Press the Tab key to cycle through the selection filters. Or, press B for "Bodies Only," F for "Faces Only," and E for "Edges Only."
You can also select multiple objects by holding down the Shift key and clicking each object, one by one. To select all items in your design space, press the Command key and A. To deselect, press the Escape key or click an empty area of the grid.
Each selection you make is indicated with a blue color, and any measurement related to your selection appears at the bottom of the screen.
Once you select a sketch, closed sketch, face, body, or edge, you can modify it with different tools. Depending on what you select, a custom menu with suggested tools will appear so you can immediately adjust the selection.
