Selecting

For many options in RS2 you are required to select entities on the screen, for example:

  • Queries for graphing, deleting
  • Support (bolts and liners) for graphing
  • Drawing Tools for formatting and editing

Here are some useful tips to remember when selecting:

  1. Individual entities can be selected with the left mouse button.
  2. Multiple entities can be selected with a window. To draw a selection window, press and HOLD the left mouse button, and as you move the mouse, you will see a selection window opening up. When you release the left mouse button, all entities WITHIN or CROSSING the window will be selected.
  3. When entities are selected, they will change colour to indicate that they are selected.
  4. IMPORTANT!! Selection works as a toggle -- entities can be "de-selected" at any time during the selection process, by simply re-selecting them with the left mouse button. You will notice that they change back to their original colour when de-selected. De-selection can only be done on individual entities, with the left mouse button, and NOT with a selection window. De-selection is useful any time that you select an entity by mistake, or if you wish to exclude some entities after multiple selection with a window.
  5. Select All (or Delete All) options are available in the right-click menus. Select All can also be done by typing the asterisk (*) character in the prompt line.
  6. You can use the above selection procedures in any combination, as required. For example, you can select a few entities with the left mouse button, then select other entities with a window, and then de-select some of the entities selected within the window. Experiment and see how this works.
  7. When selection is complete, press Enter to carry out the option, or right-click and select an option from the popup menu (e.g. Delete Selected or Graph Selected).
