Select and Select Special

Home | Select and Select Special

There are two selection tools. The most commonly used is Select; simply click and drag around an area in the warp, tie-up, weft or color bars to mark. After selecting, there are various options such as copy and cut to work with the selected threads. Keyboard shortcut for Select is "A"

Select Special allows you to click and drag to select; when the mouse is released, a box pops up with options as shown below allowing you to extend the selected rectangle through the end thread, through a selected thread, or select all threads. This option is especially useful when selecting a large range of threads that cannot be easily selected. Keyboard shortcut for Select Special is "Q" (letter above the shortcut for select).

When a selection tool is used, the cursor location at the upper right changes to dynamically show the number of threads selected. In the example below, the selection area is shaded over 10 threads, ends at thread 14 and begins at thread 4 (Threads 10| 14, 4).

Selected areas are often used in conjunction with copy, insert or delete.

To remove a selection, press the escape "esc" key and the shaded area will be removed.
