View Full Version : Qselect Wildcards
14th May 2010, 04:40 pm
Attached are two Mtext objects and a rectangle. If I highlight everything, Qselect, Mtext, Operator Wildcard match, Value [ * SLAB ], it only selects the text on the right. Why won't it select the one on the left? It contains the word "Slab".
I need to be able to select all Mtext objects that contain the word "slab".

Can you save that file to a lower version and repost? I only have 2008

Then type this instead, without the "[ ]" characters:
*SLAB*Then you will grab any MTEXT with the word SLAB in it.

Ryder: 2007 version attached
Styk: it's confusing with quotes and brackets and asterix, etc.
If I type SLAB it doesn't work
If I type *SLAB* it doesn't work
If I type *SLAB it only picks the one on the right

Also, there's a good explanation of wildcard characters in the Help file, here is a screenshot, maybe this will clear it up a bit for you:

Thanks for the help
