Window and Crossing Selection
Apart from selecting elements with Ctrl key, in the Wire Sheet view there is also another method of selecting components and links. The method involves defining a rectangular area which marks objects to be selected. It can either be a window selection or a cross selection.
Both types require marking a square area in the Wire Sheet view by clicking in an empty area and dragging a rectangle over the objects to be selected. Release the rectangle when all the selected objects are included.
In case of a window selection (see the figures below), a rectangle dragged from left to right is blue. Only objects fully covered by the rectangle are selected (orange color), here these are the LeadLag component and its two links. The remaining elements are not selected because they were not fully covered by the blue rectangle. The elements dependent on the selected LeadLag component and selected links are marked in green.
In case of a cross selection (see the figures below) the rectangle is dragged the opposite way, from right to left, and it is red. All the objects, even partially included in the rectangle, are selected (orange color), here these are the LeadLag component along with its links and components FloatTo and FloatT1 with output links.
The cross selection method enables easy removal of all input links of the component without a need to individually select each link. For this purpose drag a narrow rectangle across the component’s links that are to be selected (see the figures below). All selected links (orange color) can be deleted with a Delete key or a context menu.
