Selecting the Easy Way…

Do you know about the Direction Dependent Selection method?  This comes into effect when you draw a selection window, but is hidden within the Info Box settings of the Arrow Tool

Info Box settings of the Arrow Tool

There are three options available and each will include elements…

1:  if any part or node is included in the selection window (even the tiniest fragment!)

2:  only if the entire element is, or all nodes are, included in the selection window

3:  depending on the direction you draw the selection window:

     – left to right:  the first selection method is used (any part of element)

     – right to left:  the second selection method is used (entire element)
