Select All

Recommended Posts

I have designed a shed, separate from the main house, and would like to move the shed to another position on the site. Instead of building it all from scratch again, is there a way that I can select all components of the shed (e.g. walls, roof, floors, doors etc) and move them all in one step to another location?

Edit>Edit Area

 

I'd choose All Floors

Having chosen Edit>Edit Area>All Floors, what do I then do to select all components of the shed (to move elsewhere)?

Edit Area can work several ways.

 

1) Edit>Edit Area (All Floors)

 

Marquee (click and drag) a rectangle around what you want to select.

 

2) Draw a CAD Box (closed polyline) around what you want to move, delete etc. This may be then be shaped as needed -- made L shaped, segments changed to a curve, etc.

 

Select this polyline, then Edit>Edit Area (All Floors).

 

Edit Area will use your polyline as its selection, and you may modify it further before initiating an action on the selected area.

Having moved everything as a selection, is there a way to rotate everything as a block once it is in place?

There is a rotation handle when something is selected.

 

Transform/Replicate will also rotate a selection.

That's what I was expecting to see. But it was "hidden" among others items on screen. I can see it now. Doh!
