Select several objects

Hold down the "alt" button and click the items you want to change. Understand that only items of a like kind will be able to be changed at one time. Decks and rails are considered different items.

That doesn't work for me. I open the floor plan, hold down "alt" and click on different walls but only one wall stays selected. 

The same with rails (rail 1, rail 2, rail 3...) Only one stays selected.

What do I do wrong?

I still have the Home Designer Architectural 2016 version. Soon I plan to update.

The version is the reason?

Hold Control, not Alt if on a PC. Command if on a Mac.

 

You can also shift select items. This works for many object types, walls, cabinets etc.

 

To select all upper cabinets, first click the upper cabinet tool. Now holding shift, marquee around the uppers you want to select.

It only works for same item types. You can select multiple walls (railings) -- just make sure that's what you are selecting.

 

I tested in Architectural 2018, and don't believe it's a new feature.

I selected three railings and it shows a box around this three items. In the left corner it says: Three objects currently selected. 

...but where is the OPEN OBJECT (see image)??

I checked my trial of Architectural and you can select multiple objects, but can only open a single selected object.

 

Another ridiculous limitation of the software.

 

FYI, Pro does not have this issue.

 

Sorry -- I did not read your initial post about selecting and opening, just noticed the reply by Rookie65.
