    Thanks, for confirming Rob. It would be ideal if SELECT > WPolygon also worked that way, and I'm not sure why it doesn't since the user is explicitly defining each vertex of the selection polygon? Odd?

    And just when we thought all might be lost nestly comes through to save the day. Not to diminish the contribution by RobDraw by any means. Kudos to you both.

    Actually, SELECT > CPolygon still isn't any value in my example because it will also select all the Base and Top plates the CPoly crosses.

    I wasn't referring to mine which was lost somewhere around the turn of the century! LoL

    ... but it does solve the OP's original example.

    Oh, OK. I hadn't really imagined a scenario where there weren't any other objects between the objects the OP was trying to select, but if that's true, then yeah, SELECT > CPoly should do the trick

    As per the OP's question (and the AutoCAD Knowledge Base Article), When using a Crossing or Selection window, objects that are zoomed/panned off screen are dropped from the selection set.

    This also applies when using the SELECT command with Window, Fence, Box, and WPolygon options, however the objects seem to be retained when using the CPolygon option.

    Can anyone else replicate this?
    Replicated to good effect.

    Pickfirst =1, pickadd = 1, select as large as possible bunches of objects at a time, say 20 or so, zooming in as tight on each bunch without getting any of the current bunch off screen until you get them all. They do not expire having been rolled off screen while you go select more while not in a command, if pickfirst & pickadd = 1. Then execute the command. That's the way I have done it for a long as I can remember, mostly because it is faster than trying to get a solution to the problem, and much faster than reading this thread.

    I did go back and read enough to pick up on the Cpolygon thing though. That is pretty neat.
