I have a sketch with 2 coincident lines, one is much shorter than the other. I cannot select the shorter one as when I click on the lines Solidworks always chooses the longer line.
How do I select the shorter line?
Actually a simple window selection would work since it won't select entities which are not fully covered by the selection. So simply start the window selection half-way thru the longer line
Try RMB and select other
Window/Cross select both of them. And then press ctrl and unselect the longer one. You could also use magnifying glass (G) to zoom up the lines.
Nice simple solution - thanks Deepak.
I want to highlight the box selection method for completeness. Box selecting (drag window) left to right makes a Blue window and only selects entities that are fully inside the box. Dragging right to left draws a Green box and selects anything inside or crossing the boundary.
Then, entities can be added or removed from the selection by holding the CTRL key and picking or windowing.
SWX2015 also added the lasso feature which allows you to draw a shape to select - also following the R to L or L to R selection method described above.
