This week i have been butchering old Jobs for Quotes and this has meant stripping down existing models. After about 10 times of using quick pick to select though to the Sub Assembly of the Clamps and pipes i was removing i thought, this is solid edge there has to be a way to filter only selection of asm files so i unchecked [Assembly components] in the selection filter command and Nothing, i was disappointed. Can anyone tell me how to do this please. I know i can click in pathfinder, use quick pick and use selection filter but i want a 1 click option that selects the nearest sub assembly to my pointer. An option using Ctrl + Space to toggle would be expected as we can toggle the other way to faces.
You will need ST8 to do this. Selection filter behavior was modified to make this possible. If you set the filters in the red rectangle in the picture below, the only components that will be selected are the parts and subassemblies from the active assembly.
