11.2 Selection

With the selection functions, you can specify objects for subsequent editing. Objects are nodes, lines, surfaces, solids, members, supports, FE mesh refinements, etc. But it is also possible to graphically select loads and guide objects (dimension lines, comments).

To select (or find) an object in the work window, you can also use the tables: Click into a table row to highlight the corresponding object in the graphic. However, this type of selection only works if the synchronization of the selection is active (see Chapter 11.5.4).

Another option for selecting objects is using the Data navigator: Right-click the relevant navigator entry and click the Select option in the shortcut menu.
