Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to toggle the Flash/Point selection mode On, or OFF.


This command can be accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Selection » Flash command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button, on the Miscellaneous Tools drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
  • Using the Ctrl+F keyboard shortcut.


After launching the command, the Flash/Point selection mode will either be turned ON, or OFF, depending on its current state. With this mode turned on, you will be able to include flash/drill point objects in your selection.


  1. You must be in editing mode (carrying out an editing operation), before this command will become available.
  2. Objects will only be selected if the Add selection mode is enabled. Conversely, objects will only be deselected from an existing selection, if the Remove selection mode is enabled.
  3. You may have Flash/Point and or Draws selection modes turned ON, but you cannot have both modes turned OFF at the same time.
