General Usage Instructions

Command: QSELECTTYPE
This function allows to filter selected objects by picking desired object types from a list that pops up in the dialog window.

The filter can be done from (and applied to) the current selection or entire drawing (if the user selects all by CTRL+A). The filter can be applied to the entire drawing by selecting the appropriate option in the "Apply to" section. To pick multiple types hold the Ctrl button and left-click on desired object types.
Note: When selecting ALL objects, normally selected are also turned off layers.

Command: QSELECTCOLOR
