Selecting only one object in an array of many

Hallo Clive,
if you have a drawing containing several complex objects, how do you select only one without clicking all the lines, circles etc. of it.
Regards

Hi Joren
Either by just clicking on the individual entity or in the case of a 'block' (a grouped set of entities) -you will first need to explode it, to break the block back down into individual entities again.
use either:
1.Select block > Modify > Explode
2.Select block > Block > Explode.
3. Select block > in command line enter > XP

*Note - in some cases a 'whole' drawing made up of lots of things can still be a single block! In this situation again select everything and apply either of the above methods.

[Edit: You can also turn on/off layers as required]
