Selecting Objects Using Selection Fences in AutoCAD

You can select nonadjacent objects in a complex drawing most easily with a selection fence. A fence is a line that selects all the objects it passes through. This circuit board illustration shows a fence selecting several components.

To select nonadjacent objects with a fence

  1. At the Select Objects prompt, enter f (Fence).
  2. Specify the fence points.
  3. Press ENTER to complete the selection.

This is such a handy tool when you have a lot of objects close together. If you know the objects you want to select multiple times, you can always group them and control them as one whole or “group”
