Acad 2012 mac is miles better compare to 2011, however, I can't seem to find 'filter' command which I have been relying on to keep drawing consistency.   I stronglyl hope this will be part of the next release, or point update.   Anyhow, any work around solutions???



Thank you

AutoCAD for Mac Help documentation recommends that you use SELECTSIMILAR command in this case, but it is not really the same as FILTER or QuickSelect.

As an alternative you can try to use Quick Select For Autocad For Mac from my blog.
