In this video, Shaun Bryant shows how the SELECTIONOFFSCREEN variable allows objects that are already selected and go off-screen to remain in the selection set.
- [Instructor] We're now in another new chapter…of our course, and what we're going to look at now…is off-screen selection in AutoCAD.…In older versions of AutoCAD,…if you selected a group of objects,…and then zoomed or panned…and they went off the screen window,…you would find that they would become deselected…and not be part of your selection set anymore.…So we've got a new drawing open.…It's called OffscreenSelection.dwg.…And what we're going to do…is we're going to use that drawing…to follow along in the video.…
So make sure you've downloaded it from the website,…so that you can follow along with the video…and understand the concepts…of this off-screen selection in AutoCAD.…So if I just zoom out slightly first,…you can see that we've got six incidences…of the same three objects.…We have a hexagon, a rectangle, and a circle.…Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to select…a group of two sets of objects.…I'm going to click there,…drag the crossing selection window over,…and you can see I've got those two groups of objects…
