Have You Tried: Selection Cycling in AutoCAD

Lee Ambrosius

For the new Have You Tried, we want to talk about a selection technique called selection cycling in AutoCAD. It’s used when drawing objects are stacked on top of each other or overlapping, making it difficult to select the object you want to modify.

Discover a couple of ways to use selection cycling and some of the display settings for the Selection list box. Also learn how to remove duplicate objects based on an object’s color, layer, linetype, linetype scale, and several other object properties using the OVERKILL command.

Learn more about how to select stacked objects with step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Work With Stacked Objects topic.
