    How to select a pad

    I seem to spend hours trying to just select a pad in a view.

    Would anyone know is there a method other than tabbing and moving around a 3D view to get the thing to select?

      I usually just select a tiny crossing in plan view across the contour of the pad and filter it out, since Pad is a Category of it's own.

        i would do this way : Select many items including pad, and use filter only to select building pad

          Many thanks guys - all the suggestions work - section probably the simplest - just one of those obvious things I've never got round to working out :beer:

            Really, section easiest? Draw a section line, go to view, switch back to appropriate view, do your thing...
            OR: select with cross window, hit filter button, check Pad, and done.

            It took some time for me to get used to it, but I use the filter command ALL THE TIME now. It's so easy...

              I'm in the camp of using a window selection and filtering out...quick and easy. I use this method for selecting lots of individual categories.

                got to admit, it's window and filter every time for me. Not only do I not have to rotate or move the view to find something, when i filter it it is a quick click to isolate it.

                  And if there are multiple pads?

                    Well, that would only be a problem if you draw a really big selection window, or if you don't exactly know where they are. In both cases, a section also means trouble, since you have no reference on which Pad you're looking at...

                    But it would probably be: window - filter - isolate - select proper one.
