Select Similar Autocad 2010 Lisp Rating: 6,5/10 1992 votes

I am trying to make a lisp open a block, select all, move objects to layer 0, then save a and close the block. I cannot get my routine to select all though. Apparently (command '_ai_selall') is not valid for use in lisp routines. Do i need to use (initiatecommandversion X)? Should be using an ssget function?

Quickly select objects with shared properties. Select an object that represents the category of objects you want to select. Right-click, and choose Select Similar. Note: Only objects of the same type (lines, circles, polylines, etc.) are considered similar. 10 Time Savers for AutoCAD Architecture. There are lots of tips and tricks that allow AutoCAD® Architecture to run smoother than ever. In this article, I’ll touch on a handful of the many that are available. And, because each of these could be an article in itself, I’ve just hit the highlights. Now, sit back and enjoy! Select Similar. The 'Select similar' function also in plain AutoCAD.: The function 'Select similar' (the command SELECTSIMILAR, resp. AecSelectSimilar - see the menu Edit and the object context menu) is in older versions (pre-2011) available only in the AEC versions of AutoCAD (AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, AutoCAD Civil 3D). Using a simple LISP expression you can add this functionality also to a plain.



Besides the styles and tables purgeable with native command, RadicalPurge offers the opportunity to purge other unreferenced objects: groups, annotative scales, external references (DWG references, raster images, underlays) and obsolete entities (empty text and entity zero length).

The RPURGE command opens a dialog box to select the types of objects to purge.

Picking drawing elements in AutoCAD can be frustrating, especially if you have a complex drawing. You can see (most of) AutoCAD tools options on command line or dynamic input. Like this polyline tool for example. You can see it’s options: arc, halfwidth, length, undo, and width.

But do you see the options for selecting drawing elements? Nope. AutoCAD selection tool has options that you can use, but somehow, Autodesk just decided not to show them.

Let’s explore about this tool, from very basic knowledge that you might already know, to the hidden options!

1. Pick Single

You can pick single object when AutoCAD ask you to select objects.

2. Window

You can define a window selection by clicking at two points. Click first point on the left side, and 2nd point on the right side. This will select all elements inside the window.

This action will select:
(dotted circles are the selection)

If you pick your points right then left, then it will be cross window selection (will be explained next). This two are the default window selection.

If you want to activate window selection, type W then [enter]. Type it when AutoCAD ask you: select objects…

Even you pick points from right then left, it will be window selection.

3. Cross Window

Basically if your window selection defined from right to left, then it will be cross window selection. It will select all elements inside and touching the window.

This action will select:

You can override to activate cross window selection by typing C then [enter].

4. Fence

You can select drawing elements by defining ‘a fence’ that touched objects you wanted. Just type F then [enter] to activate it. After you finish defining your fence, press [enter] to select.

This action will select:

5. Window Polygon

This option behave as window selection, but you can define unlimited points for that window. Just type WP then [enter] to activate it. All elements inside the window will be selected.

Autocad Lisp Functions

This action will select:

6. Crossing Polygon

Similar to cross window selection. CP

This action will select:

7. Touching Objects

When AutoCAD ask you to select object, type ‘FS then [enter]. We use ‘ for transparent use. Pick your object, then all objects touching it will be selected.

Select objects: ‘FS

Use ‘FSMODE to control chain selection.
Select touching object: 3 object(s) found. 3 found, 7 total

Select objects:
Exiting Fastsel

FASTSEL is an express tool. So if you don’t have express tools installed, it might not work.

This selection is controlled by FSMODE system variable.

FSMODE = OFF (default), it will select objects touching your picked object only.
FSMODE = ON, it will select objects touching it, and all objects touching them too.

8. Cycle Overlapping Objects

Autocad Lisp Programs

If you have many overlapped drawing elements or close to each other, and you are too lazy to zoom in, you can cycle between them by pressing [shift] + [space]. Hold your [shift] key, and press [space] several times until you found your object. Release your keyboard key, then click your mouse.

9. Select Previous Selection or Last Object

Did you ever want to select your previous selection? Easy, just type P then [enter] when AutoCAD ask you to do selection!

What about last object created? Either the last drawn or result from modify operations such as copy. Type L then [enter]!

10. Remove/Add

Select Similar Autocad 2010 Lisp

Sometimes it’s easier to select all elements then remove some of them from your selection set. You can do this by holding [shift] and select object you want to exclude. OR, you can type R then [enter] to switch to remove mode.

To activate add objects, type A then [enter].

11. Lasso selection

This feature is introduced in AutoCAD 2015. You can click and hold your left mouse then drag the pointer to make a lasso selection. Similar to window and crossing polygon, but you don’t need to type anything to activate this mode!

Autocad Select Similar

If you drag your pointer first to the right, it will be a window selection. But if after the first click you drag it to the left, it will be crossing window selection. Like you see below.

Bonus: Undo Selection

Autocad Select Similar Settings

Here is a bonus option. You can undo your last object selection by typing U [enter] while your selection set is still active. This only undoing your last selection.

Have fun! You may want to go see about quick select and filter for more advanced ways.
