Pick Query

Hey guys! I can't find a way to select an entity using the option Pick-Query. It seems that you can only highlight it and read the ID only. Am I doing sth wrong?

RE: Pick Query


The pick query option is useful when you have some coincident entities (nodes, elements, curves, surfaces...).

For example, if you want to list one of two coincident nodes, first activate Pick Query option, then List / Model / Node. Click on one node and a little window will appears with both nodes IDs to allow you choosing the one you want then click OK.

Even if there is only one node and you activate the pick query option you should be able to select the node.

Hope this helps,

RE: Pick Query

Thanks for your quick answer! My problem is that I can only highlight the entity, namely I double click later or click OK and the entity cannot still be selected. Is it a bug or wrong configuration?
