Creo Parametric Tip: Selection Using <Ctrl> and <Shift>

In Creo Parametric, you can use the <Ctrl> and <Shift> keys in the same way you would with a Microsoft Office application, such as Word.

  • In the main graphics window or the model tree, you can press and hold down the <Ctrl> key to select multiple, individual items.
  • After selecting an item, you can press and hold down the <Shift> key and select another item, and Creo Parametric will select the two items, as well as all items in between.

 

Watch as Natasha demonstrates this in her short video:

Additional information about this and other selection methods are taught in our Creo Parametric: Introduction to Solid Modeling course.
