Lasso Tool and Selection

Hello

 

When using the lasso tool for multi-select with the default option, the lasso selects only items contained in the lasso loop. Is there a way to change this so the the selects sketch in the lasso loop and items that cross the loop?

 

In SW this is analagous to CW and CCW lasso'ing.

You can also access the rules for multiple selection via the selection toolbar, or the mini popup selection tool bar. The image shows the options for multiple selection, rectangle, lasso and circle (added in NX 11). The second dropdown shows the rules for selection. 

 

The image on the bottom shows them on the MB 3 popup for the selection toolbar.

Thanks Ganesh, Scott

 

How do I get that toolbar at the top? I don't think that's default and I'm not sure what to look for in the customize toolbar section

Select the down arrow on rightmost side of the top border bar, Selection Group > Multi-select Rule.
