How to pick components and control points

Command: pickNear

Description: This command serves to pick components by clicking with the mouse. Either whole components or primitive control points can be picked.

As an option, a component filter can be defined. The filter must be explicitly enabled. Currently, the filter can be configured to accept visible and/ or invisible components.

Picking components

Hits a single component by picking near a digitized (clicked) point. If more than one component is near the picked point then the command can be issued repeatedly to hit a specific component.

It is distinguished between two different modes of operation:

Picking control points

As a prerequisite the component must be already selected. The command then marks or unmarks control points if they are hit. The status of the operation is shown in the status bar. If the component has control points that coincide, the command can be called repeatedly until the desired control point(s) are hit.
