Frequent tipster Leonid Nemirovsky sends us a tip to help you select objects more quickly using the Fast Select Express Tool in AutoCAD.
"First set FSMode to on by typing FSMode at the Command prompt. Then, if you have a bunch of intersecting or touching objects, type FS at the Command prompt, select one of the objects, and all touching or intersecting objects will be selected (with grips)."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Fast Select is an Express Tool that creates a selection set of objects that touch the selected object. When turned off, FS will only select the objects that are touching the selected object. When turned on, FS will select all objects touching the selected objects, as well as all objects touching those objects that are displayed on the screen.
