Block or Xref to a Selected State?
« on: January 09, 2017, 08:23:35 am »
Got another dumb question. Typically when you select and xref or block it highlights itself. You hit escape to run another command and it goes away. Is there a way that you can toggle the highlight mode on an xref or block so it shows that way until you turn it off? This kinda ties back with Comparing Objects that are on top of each other to see if there are difference?

Thanks for the ideas!

I think there is not some kind of toggle to do that.
Maybe you can use the 'group' command to specify some kinf of selection.
But i normalyy use 'xref'overlay with transparency and different colors to look for differences in files...

Just a thought..
when Pickadd = 2 you can use the "Select" command and it keeps the item highlighted (selected) for the next command.
