I decided that I want all the edges in the model to have a fillet of 0.1mm. Problem is, I have tons of features and edges in the model, selecting them one by one is lots of work. Any chance that "select all edges in the model" option exists?
Turn on the selection filter for edge selection then box select the entire model.
Let me know how this works for you.
I have a slight modification to Russell's suggestion. As he said, turn on the selection filter for edges, then Ctrl+A will select all edges in the model. (I learned about that in a class at SolidWorks World this year. I think it was one of Alin Vargatu's.)
Good memory, Glenn! .
Even easier, just pre-select an edge and then press CTRL+A.
Works with any type of entity: face, dimension, balloon, note, plane...

I don't usually have a good memory, but that workflow, along with inserting a BOM into an assembly to edit it's component's properties, are two things that really stuck with me.
And I just did a little experimenting with this. If I click on an edge and then Ctrl+A, as you said, then activate the Fillet command (which is what the OP was referring to), it worked fine. However, if I activate the Fillet command first, then selecting an edge and Ctrl+A didn't work. In that case I had to activate the Select Edges filter and then Ctrl+A.
Right you are. We should make SW aware that the UI behaviour is inconsistent.
Yes, that is handy but is there a way to only select say all edges that run in the X or Y or other specified direction only?
