How to select the select simalr option like autocad ?
Its a bit clunky, but you can use the very old school "Select By Attributes" dialog to do this.
Select the element first then use the Select By Attribute dialog ->Tools->Set Select by from element, then hit the execute button.
You should be able to drive this with some key-ins which you can always add to a function key:
MDL LOAD SELECTBY DIALOG;SELECTBY ELEMENT;SELECTBY EXECUTE
Robert, that will execute without allowing you to select it. YOu could select the element and then run the key in or you will need to add a %d before the execute. MDL silentload SELECTBY;SELECTBY ELEMENT;%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE
Note in u188.8.131.52 the %d doesn't seem to working, I tried both SELECTBY ELEMENT;%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE and SELECTBY ELEMENT%d;SELECTBY EXECUTE and it just seems to execute on the last selected element. I guess making a selection first is your best bet.
