Use advanced selection commands
You can move and copy objects faster and more easily using the following commands from the Environment’s Edit menu:
Select Used Instruments: Selects all objects that are assigned to the selected track in the main window, or are connected to such objects via cables.
Select Unused Instruments: Selects all objects that are neither used in the main window, nor connected to any such objects via cables.
Select Cable Destination: Highlights the destination object of a selected cable connection. This is particularly useful when:
The destination object is on a different layer. You can use the function to select and display the destination object (and layer).
You can locate the destination object of a source object in the list display (View > By Text), because selecting the source object also selects its cable connections.
This function allows you to follow the cabling from one (serially cabled) object to the next. If several objects are connected in parallel, or several cable connections are selected, the path of the upper cable is followed.
Select Cable Origin: Highlights the source (or origin) object of a selected cable connection. This is particularly useful for troubleshooting, or when you want to make changes to a number of serially cabled objects (by changing the original).
Invert Selection: Changes the status of any selected objects in the current layer, just as in the main window and editors.
