Selection Cycling in Carlson Survey OEM 2015

Postby donna_jwsc » Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:32 pm

I cannot find the command to cycle through linework, text, etc. in 2015. Does anyone know where I can find/change this? I do a lot of work that ends up having multiple lines on top of each other and sometimes need to erase a line that is underneath another.

Try holding the <Ctrl> key down while you pick.

That doesn't work.
I believe that's why the question was asked.

It's the shift instead of control, command is SELECTIONCYCLING (system variable)
From Autocad help:
To Select Overlapping or Close Objects
1. Make sure that Selection Cycling is turned on.
2. As you roll your cursor over objects, you will see an icon indicating that multiple objects are available for selection.
3. Click to see a list of available objects, and then click in the list to select the object you want.
Tip: You can also cycle through objects by holding Shift down when you see the double-rectangle icon, and pressing the Spacebar to cycle through the objects available for selection. When the required object is highlighted, click to select it

It has been a long time, but I finally found the location for the Selection Cycling. My Drafting Settings dialogue window was hiding the tab.
I am posting this so the next installation of Carlson Survey goes a lot more smoothly. Amazing how something so small can cause such anxiety!

Reminder that under the AutoCAD options, go to "selection" tab. Go to "grips", then uncheck the "allow ctrl+cycling behavior". then the selection cycling will return.
