Select Elements dialog-box

MechDesigner opens the Select Elements dialog-box if there is ambiguity as to which elements you must select to do 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.

The dialog list the elements that are not ambiguous and ambiguous.

You must start the selections again to complete the command, or to continue with the command-manager selections.

Note-Pencil Use the CTRL key to select more than one element.
