Select Multiple Objects#
AutoCAD offers several options for the selection of multiple objects:
By clicking on several objects in turn, or by clicking in an empty part of the drawing area and using click and drag thus:
Window selection: When you drag the cursor from left to right, only objects that lie completely within the selection area (blue box) are selected.
Crossing selection: If you drag the cursor from right to left, any object that lies wholly or partially within the selection area (green box) will be selected.
Lasso selection: If you keep the mouse button pressed while moving the cursor, the elements will be selected via a Lasso selection instead of a rectangle selection.
