HydrauliCAD’s SAVE Selection Sets Tool

SAVE Selection Sets Tool in HydrauliCAD water system modelling software in AutoCAD

Our Special Hydraulic Query / Quick Select Tools can be used in conjunction with the ability to Save Selection Sets for future use in this water system modelling software in AutoCAD.

Selection Sets to save can be collected by several means:

1. Manually,
2. via Custom AutoCAD Quick Select,
3. via HydrauliCAD Quick Select
or 4. From an Existing Saved Selection Set (Temporary or Permanent type).

All Selection Sets, no matter how they are collected, can be saved in the Selection Set Form, recalled later, then Edited, Appended to, or Selected from, using any of the above methods.

You can also Cycle through the result “by Individual Object” using our “Cycle through selection” method, Viewing and / or Editing any individual Object. (See Cycle through Sets in this Section of the User guide or use the links below).

  • NOTE 1: Following Query, you can edit any Property of your result en masse in the Properties Palette.
  • NOTE 2: You can also Save the resulting Selection Set for future recall (see Save Sets in this Section of the User guide or use the links below).
  • NOTE 3: At any time, Saved Sets can be recalled later, then Edited, Appended to, or Selected from, using any of the above 4 selection methods. (See Save Sets in this Section of the User guide or use the links below).
  • NOTE 4: You can also Cycle through the result “by Individual Object” using our “Cycle through selection” method, Viewing and / or Editing any individual Object. (See Cycle through Sets in this Section of the User guide or use the links below).

There are 2 distinct Types of Selection Sets:

1. “Temporary Sets” remain only as long as the Current AutoCAD Session remains.

2. “Permanent Sets”. Once the drawing is saved, they remain a permanent part of the drawing and can be recalled at any time in the future.

“Cycle Through Sets” Tool:

Selections (Saved Sets or merely Selected), when placed into “Trace” allow one to Cycle through its contents one by one, and View and / or Edit each individual Object.
