Select all Rectangle Shapes with a height less than 0.01” and all Circle shapes greater than or equal to 0.02”

Go to the menu:  Edit > Selection > Filter
The selection filter is an extremely useful tool used for controlling the content of Objects that are selected prior to performing any modifications or queries. It can be a major time saver as it parses out Objects that do not pass certain requirement that you set.


1. Select Edit > Selection > Filter. A Selection Filter dialog box will appear.
2. Verify or Edit all Filter items. Select OK when complete.

Filter Name:
Save and reuse your selection filters. This feature drastically speeds up editing in between sessions.
Object Types:
For items with check boxes, a check means the item can be selected, removing a check means the item cannot be selected. By default all are checked.
Number/Ranges:
Items here allow you to include or exclude specific Dcodes, Layers, Composite Levels, or NC Tools from being selected. Enter numbers and/or ranges separated by commas as directed in the dialog box.
Names:
Items here allow you to include specific objects for selection based from matching names. Use a semicolon ‘;’ to separate names for Nets, Shapes, Components, and Attributes.

3. Select all Rectangle Shapes with a height less than 0.01” and all Circle shapes greater than or equal to 0.02” just enter in the Shapes field: rectangle,height<0.01;circle>=0.02

IMPORTANT: Each shape filter argument can accept the following: <shape>,width=x,height=x separated by a semicolon if there are multiple shape filter arguments. The units for X is the current units of the FAB 3000 editor.
