Here is another way to deselect objects while making a selection set. You can find the previous post [HERE] that shows how to use the SHIFT key to do something similar.
While you are in the middle of a command and you are asked to select objects, it might be easier to select everything in the drawing by entering ALL when prompted to select objects and then deselect the some of the objects that you don’t want deleted.
After a selecting set has been made:
- R <enter> to start Removing objects from the selection set
- Then select objects that you want removed from the selection set.
Note:This tip is not limited to using the ERASE command or using the ALL option when selecting objects. They are just examples of its use.
