For many editing operations, such as moving, copying, and deleting, you must select an object. Clicking an unselected object or clicking an open area deselects everything currently selected. You cannot select a front panel object and a block diagram object at the same time.
Complete the following steps to select an object.
You also can create a selection rectangle around the object(s).
Complete the following steps to create a selection rectangle.
|Note By default, when you create a selection rectangle around objects, you must enclose the entire structure or the midpoint of a wire segment to select it. If you press the spacebar when you create the selection rectangle, you select any objects that the selection rectangle touches. To restore the default selection behavior, press the spacebar again.|
Press the <Shift> key and click objects to select additional objects or deselect an object.
If automatic tool selection is enabled, you must deselect the object the cursor is over to switch from the Positioning tool to another tool.
