Objects not selected when moved out of view

Recommended Posts

With AutoCAD, when zooming while selecting objects, items that move out of view are not selected when more are added to the selection.

With newer versions of AutoCAD, there is the SELECTIONOFFSCREEN command.

Is there anything that can be done for older versions?

After creating your selection set zoom back out so that they are all visible again before you pull the trigger.

Possibly a very quick Zoom All?

They aren't deleted as they disappear from the view, that is done when you hit Enter.

Sorry but this does not work. It's what I have been trying to do in the first instance.

One way is zoom c scale make a defun with a suitable scale. Its not that hard to roll/pan mouse button before/during selecting.
