Ideate XRay requires the selection of both an invisible element and a Target View. Sometimes selecting an invisible element can be challenging. There are three ways to select a hidden element:
The Select by Crossing button enables the user to make a crossing rectangle on a view as a way of selecting elements that may be hidden. This method works best if the rectangle is made as small as possible. It will return a list of elements, both visible and invisible that have a bounding box that exists at least partially within the rectangle. The results are relative to the plane of the view.
Elements that are not supported by this method include: Grids, Levels and View References (elevation, section and callout markers). Use the Selection Wizard for assistance in selecting these types of elements.
