Select Elements dialog-box

MechDesigner opens the Select Elements dialog-box automatically if there is ambiguity as to which element you must select to complete a command.

There is 'ambiguity', for example, when you click two or more elements in the graphic-area with one mouse-click, and the command needs only one element to complete the command.

In the dialog, you must select all of the Elements that you need to complete the command, or to continue with the command-manager selections.

Use the CTRL key if you need to select more than one element, then click OK.

You may need to also click OK in the Command-Manager.
