New Features

Filter Select Inside

This function combines two existing functions to streamline certain selection requirements. Dragging a box around a specific area will produce the pop-up menu containing the Filter Select Inside option. If the option is chosen then the Filter Selection dialog is displayed. Any filter settings applied in the dialog will now apply inside the drawn box. This can be used to select a specific tool size within an area, a specific D-Code, or part numbers. It can also be used to Unselect previously selected data within an area by making use of the Unselect option within the Filter Selection dialog.
