Select All

Select All selects everything in the graphics area, as if you made a box selection covering the entire area.

Select All works with parts, assemblies, and drawings. For parts, Select All respects any active selection filters when it makes the selection. For assemblies, Select All, like box selection, selects all components.

To select everything in the graphics area:

Click Edit > Select All, or press Ctrl+A.
To limit the selection to specific entities in a part, pre-select one or more entities in the graphics area. For example, pre-select an edge and a vertex to limit the selection to all edges and vertices.

This table provides examples of Select All performed in different circumstances on a part.
