Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Delete key: PICKFIRST variable, part of AutoCAD 2017 New Features.
- [Voiceover] Let's have a look now at another…really neat, new user interface feature…available in AutoCAD 2017…and it's the pick first variable…that you use when you're using the Delete key…on the keyboard.…Now what I'm going to do is,…I'm gonna zoom into the top left corner of…the O1 user interface .dwg file…that we're using for this section.…So, I'm just gonna use the mouse,…zoom in a bit and you can see some dimensions…and things there on that corner and you can see…obviously things like the coordinates, the grids and so on.…Now what I'm going to do is utilize that dimension there,…that 3050 dimension there.…
So, if I hover over that now, click on it,…it highlights with the grips as usual.…In any version of AutoCAD, that is what would happen…and then what would happen is if I decide to use…delete on the keyboard, it just deletes it…and you can see at the bottom there on the command line,…arrays and one found.…Now, wouldn't it be nice though,…if before I deleted something, it gave me the option…saying, "Are you sure you want to delete that?"…
