    Selection problem

    Jerry Brian

      Once in a while the selection filter function will come on. Maybe a misfire from pressing 2 keys at once or something. Now I can't select, have to go find the selection filter toolbar, , turn it on, deselect the line or point in that bar, and then remove the selection toolbar.

          You can press F5 to toggle the selection filter toolbar then just press the clear all icon to turn off all selection filters.

            F5 will toggle the selection filter toolbar on and off.

             

            F6 will toggle the actual filters on and off.

             

            So if it happens again, just hit F6.

             

            Sometimes I think that I will be typing here in the forum or in an email and my keyboard focus will be in Solidworks instead and I will hit some of these keys:

             

            But F6 just turns them all off.
