There is a 2D box selection workflow to support object/action workflows.
Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can watch a video that demonstrates this capability.
There is a wider introduction of 2D box selection throughout Creo Parametric as an additional method of selection for tools that support object/action workflows. 2D box selection in Creo Parametric uses the selection filter settings and only selects objects of the type applicable to the active selection filter
If you press and hold CTRL while performing multiple 2D box selection operations, then objects are added into the selection in a cumulative way. To remove objects from the selection, press and hold CTRL and then click the individual objects to remove them. When using 2D box selection and dragging the box from left to right all items entirely located within the box are selected. When dragging the box from right to left all items touched by the 2D box are selected.
Unless intent-based selection is advised, the new 2D box selection is an efficient alternative to individual selections or complex composite selections.
