All objects in the Structural Analysis task have properties that you can edit. Using the Select command on the vertical toolbar, you select the object to edit.

An important part of the Select command is the Locate Filter box that appears on the ribbon. The Locate Filter box contains the available, pre-defined filters for the Select command. When you choose a filter in the Locate Filter box, the software allows you to select only the filtered objects in a graphic view and in the Workspace Explorer. For example, if you select Boundary Conditions, you can select only boundary conditions, supports, in a graphic view or in the Workspace Explorer.

The Structural Analysis task includes these filters:

Analysis Models

Limits your selection in the Workspace Explorer to analysis models.

Boundary Conditions

Limits your selection in a graphic view or in the Workspace Explorer to boundary conditions.
