Select same properties

In the Select and Search panel, you have the option to select the object with the same <property>. Inside my model, there is like 20 properties for example: equip #, iso #, line # etc.


Can I select which property I want the model to look at when I click on Select same -> properties

When I select a pipe for example, I would like to select all the pipe that as the same line #. When I click on select same - properties, nothing happend. Why? Is it because all the properties need to be the same to be selected?


I know I can get all pipes with same line # if I select that line # inside the selection tree-->properties tab--> line # but I need something quicker than that.


I tried to changed the selection resolution but no one is made for my need. In a perfect world, I would like to add another tab to the selection resolution for line #!


Does anyone have a solution?

Sorry about the delay on this. It's a current limitation but I have added an enhancement request about this.


As you state the current workaround at the moment is to go through Properties in the Selection Tree.


You may be able to do this through the API, I'd suggest asking a question there

I'm wondering about the exact same thing, being this is an older post was there ever a solution for this?
