Select Similar Tool

Recommended Posts

Am I missing the ability to use the select similar tool on spotlight lighting device instruments to select all of one fixture type? Is there a setting to do that somewhere?

Just throwing that out there is case someone knows the trick because right now I am not seeing it.

Select similar tool can't see field values in databases, so it won't do what you want.

2 options:

1. Spotlight>Find and Modify…> Find All Light whose Inst Type = _______ OK

2. Get Sam Jones' tools. http://autoplotvw.com Hundreds of short cuts for things you do every day. Worth every penny of the very small number of pennies he charges.

Thanks Michael

Yeah I definitely use option 1 constantly. I was just thinking there should be a way to set the select similar tool to act that way. Wasn't sure if there was something I was missing or not.

Thanks,

Matt

I'm gonna throw my hat in the ring too: AutoPlot is total a lifesaver. Aside from the find and modify functions, "Copy Altered Label Legends" is amazing! Without a doubt, it's worth the asking price.
