Edit Selection Question

Recommended Posts

I used to be able to drag a selection around cabinets, beds, desks, washers, etc, and it wouldn't matter if I had part of the wall selected. As long as the entire wall wasn't selected, the only things that I could move with this selection are the things COMPLETELY selected.  I must have turned off some setting, but I'd like to get that feature back.  I've tried the edit area features and those don't see to give me what I want.  What do I need to reset to get the 'normal' selection feature back to normal?  That is, how can I just select only those items fully within the selection area?

I assume you are speaking of "Marquee Select", if you are, there are three "Modes" it can be set to use found in Edit - Preferences - Edit - Marquee Selection", I recommend you try each one and see which behavior you prefer, I often change the mode depending upon what I am doing.

Thanks DavidJPotter.  That was it.  I had to change it to select intersected objects.  Sometimes the simple things are not so obvious.  I tried searching for it in the manual and in the videos but never used the word "marquee".
