No More Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe… W/ New Object Selections in 2011.

Have you ever needed to select all of the same type of object in your drawing but needed to filter out certain properties, and felt like you were in the middle of a game of “Where’s Waldo?” One of the best features to be added into the AutoCAD core product in AutoCAD 2011 comes from the Subscription Advantage Pack from last year was the advanced capabilities of the new Select Similar tool enables you to select an object and automatically include all other objects of the same type and with the same properties, in a new selection set. And one of the best things about it is you can use it on the fly and it is less time consuming than Filter or Quick Select commands. You can access it from the right‐click menu when objects are selected.
