Most of the selection commands allow more than one object to be selected at once. To select more than one of a particular object, you can use the Plus, Minus, Thru and Invert operators.

These operators work on most of the selection commands, including:


Plus (+)

Use the Plus (+) operator to add additional objects to your selection.

For example:

Channel 1+3+5+7
Selects channels 1, 3, 5 and 7.

Channel 1>10+20>30
Selects channels 1 thru 10 and 20 thru 30.

Group 1+5
Selects the channels in Group 1 and Group 5.


Minus (-)

Use the Minus (-) operator to remove objects from your selection.

For example:

Channel 1>10-5
Selects channels 1 thru 10, except for channel 5 (or, in other words, channels 1 thru 4 and 6 thru 10).

Group 1-3
Selects the channels in Group 1 that are not in Group 3.


Thru (>)

Use the Thru (>) operator to add a range of objects to your selection.

For example:

Channel 1>10
Selects channels 1 thru 10.

Channel 1>50-20>30
Selects channels 1 thru 50, except for channels 20 thru 30 (or, in other words, channels 1 thru 19 and 31 thru 50).


Invert (~)

Use the Invert (~) operator to invert which objects are selected.

For example:

Button 3
On
~
Off
Selects button 3, then turns it’s indicator on, then inverts the selection (selecting all buttons except for button 3), then turns those indicators off.
