Combining Surfaces

I am running an electrostatic field strength and voltage simulation for a MEMS device, but am having a problem specifying the "Invoke Force/Charge calculation" surfaces.  I have a lot of surfaces that I need information for, and was wondering if I could specify only one surface.

 

I saw in a tutorial, located here, in which multiple surfaces are combine into one surface.

 

I have been looking for a long time on google and these threads, but have not found any way to do this.

 

Thanks a lot for your help,

Mike

Hi Mike,

 

Select the lines that you want to change. The easiest method is to first select all of the surfaces ("Selection > Select > Surface" while holding down the Shift key), then select the lines on those surfaces ("Selection > Subentities > Lines").

 

Change the surface number of the selected lines. ("Draw > Modify > Attributes")
