How can I find the members with a certain length?


The "Special Selection" function allows you to select the objects with specific properties. To open the Special Selection dialog box, use the menu Edit → Select → Special or the corresponding toolbar button.

In the "Special Selection" dialog box, select the "Members" category and activate the "With length" check box. The length range can then be entered in the "from" and "to" text boxes. Use the "Select Member and Import Properties" button to import the member length (Figure 01).

The video shows how to select the members that correspond to the member length of a particular member. Furthermore, it shows how to select the members that rest in a certain length range.
