Selecting lines and regions

  1. Move the mouse pointer to the line or region which you want to select.

  2. For selecting more than one line or region, press and hold CTRL key and simultaneously

    press the middle mouse button to select a line.


    press the left mouse button to select a region.

The selected line(s) and region(s) will be displayed in different colors.


In some dialogs you will find buttons for selecting all regions or all lines, because you cannot select them by drawing a rectangle with the left mouse button as in Geometry Mode.


If the structured mesh is available then not only the drawing lines but simultaneously the lines of the auxiliary drawing are selected where only the data of the structured mesh is contained. The selected lines of the auxiliary drawing are marked by parallel red segments which have a small offset from the marked lines. In opposite for the selected lines of the main drawing no offset appears.
