You can use the Select tool to exit a command and return to select mode, which is useful when in sketches and with the viewing tools.
Select is the default mode when you are not in a command. In most cases, when you exit a command, control reverts automatically to select mode. When select mode is active, you can select entities in the graphics area or the FeatureManager design tree with the pointer.
Dynamic highlighting informs you which entity is ready to be selected as you move the pointer. You can set an option to turn dynamic highlighting on or off in Selection Options.
To activate the select mode:
- In parts and drawings, click Select (Standard toolbar).
- In assemblies, click the down arrow on Select (Standard toolbar) and choose an option on the Select Flyout button.
To select multiple items, hold down Ctrl while selecting.
