Selecting Objects that Are Close Together in AutoCAD

Selecting objects that are close together or directly on top of one another is often difficult. When objects are close together, you can press CTRL and click to cycle through selection of these objects until you reach the one you want.
In the following example, two lines and a circle all lie within the scope of the selection pickbox.

To cycle through objects for selection

  1. At the Select Objects prompt, hold down CTRL and select a point as near as possible to the object you want.
  2. Click your pointing device repeatedly until the object you want is highlighted.
  3. Press ENTER to select the object.
