About Selecting MCAD Data in the Graphics Area
You can select one or more parts or markups in the graphics area for the loaded assembly. By default, selected parts are highlighted and surrounded by a bounding box. With the smart selection method, you can refine the selection of a part to a surface or edge on that part. You can then refine the selection further, to entities such as:
Center Points
Set options to enable or disable preselection, and secondary selection highlighting for 3D parts. For other geometry, it is enabled by default. You can set a smart selection filter to select that type of item. You can view a list of the items that are selected, and you can see a summary of the number of selected items in the status bar. You can also select or deselect all parts simultaneously, or, invert the part selection.
