If you selects objects and then realize that you selected an object or two on accident, removing those objects is really simple. Also, it may be quicker to make a selection set and remove objects from the selection set than it would be to select each object individually.
- After making a selection set,
- Hold the SHIFT button while you select the objects that are to be removed from the selection set.
- Note: You can the common selection methods: Pick, Window, or Crossing Window
If this isn’t working for you, check the OPTIONS dialog box > Selection tab > and in the “Selection modes” area, make sure that the “Use Shift to add to selection” is unchecked (shown below).
