Select Elements

The Select Elements dialog-box will open if there is ambiguity as to which element or Elements you need to select to continue or complete a command.

When you do a command, you need to select elements of different element-types.

As you select an element, you may actually click more than one element - and MechDesigner need to know which element you want to select.

Remember, you must:

Ctrlb + Click the element you need - even if you have already selected it before this dialog opened.
