To edit, remove or use some project items, you need to select those first. There are several ways to easily do this in Virtual Surveyor. This article shows the four ways to select items.


Click item

In the viewport or in the project view, you can click on an item to select it. In addition, you can maintain Ctrl and click on a few project items to include those in your selection. 



Use Shift+click to select a range of items in the project view.



Rectangle Select

In the viewport it's also possible to select multiple items at the same time. Press Shift and drag the cursor to draw a rectangle and select everything within it.  



Area Select 

You can enable the Area Select tool in the HOME tab. Within the viewport outline the items you want selected by left-mouse clicking. Right click to end your Area Select. Items within the selection area will now be selected.



Select Within

When a boundary is selected, go to the TOOLS tab and click on Select Within to select all the project items located within that boundary.
