Selection methods

We've started to use solidcam for our cam Programing and now find that selecting multiple surfaces on a complex part is quite time consuming.

I've always thought that selecting multiple surfaces in solidworks can be a pain. You can select tangent surfaces but sometimes that will select every surface on a complex mould. Dragging a box or the new lasso tool is also quite inefficient as you can't even start your mouse drag from an area within or on the surfaces.


It would be great if you could simply put your mouse into a mode where any surface that it moves over is selected. That way you could easily glide over surfaces and select them quickly.


Does anyone have any tricks or ideas as to how to select multiple tangent surfaces without manually clicking each one?
