♦    How to apply: Once you create a filter, you can use it to create a selection set. To do this, check Include In New Selection Set. You can also use Quick Select to select everything except objects that meet your selection criteria—to do so, choose Exclude From New Selection set.

♦ Append to current selection set: Check this box to add objects meeting your criteria to an existing selection set.

To select the objects meeting your criteria and close the dialog box, click OK.

AutoCAD selects the objects that meet your criteria. If you choose “Exclude from new selection set,” AutoCAD selects all objects that don’t meet your criteria. You can start a command and use the selection set. If the command must be started before selecting objects, you can use the Previous option (type p J) at the Select objects: prompt to select the objects selected using Quick Select.

Using the FILTER command

The advantage of using the FILTER command over Quick Select is that you can create more complex filters and save them.

To create a filter, type filter J on the command line. AutoCAD opens the Object Selection Filters dialog box, as shown in Figure 10-41. If you have already chosen a command, type ‘filter at the Select objects: prompt to create the selection filter transparently. The box at the top of the dialog box lists the filters you have specified.

Note The selection filter only finds colors and linetypes of objects that have been specifically set as such, rather than as part of a layer definition. Layers, colors, and line-types are covered in Chapter 11.
