Accessing the SelectionManager

To access the SelectionManager:

  1. Activate a supported tool (loft, sweep, or boundary surface).
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select a sketch entity.
      If the entire selected 2D or 3D sketch is valid as the selected parameter, the SelectionManager does not appear. For example, if a 3D sketch contains multiple entities that together are valid as a guide curve, and you select that 3D sketch as a guide curve, the SelectionManager does not appear.
    • Right-click and choose SelectionManager.
When the SelectionManager is active, the Confirmation Corner changes to, which allows you to accept the selection and exit, or to cancel the SelectionManager.
