Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to change the selection status of one or more design objects in the current document. The command is used to change the status for one object at a time and not a group of objects simultaneously.

Access

This command can be accessed from the PCB Editor or PCB Library Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Select » Toggle Selection command from the main menus.
  • Choosing the Edit » DeSelect » Toggle Selection command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a crosshair and you will enter toggle selection mode. Position the cursor over an object in the design then click or press Enter to change its selection status.

Continue changing the selection status of further objects or right-click or press Esc to exit toggle selection mode.

Tips

  1. You also can toggle the selection status of a single object without affecting the status of other objects by positioning the cursor over the object then clicking (provided the Click Clears Selection option is disabled on the PCB Editor - General page of the Preferences dialog). If the Click Clears Selection option is enabled, position the cursor over the object then use Shift+click.
  2. If it is desirable to limit specific objects from being inadvertently selected, you can optionally specify that only certain objects can be selected through Shift+click operations. This setting can be found on the PCB Editor - General page of the Preferences dialog. Click the Primitives button to configure which objects require Shift to be held during selection.
