Warning

There is no undo option when deleting a subset.

Note

No entities are deleted when a subset is deleted.

Adding and removing Entities from a Subset

When a subset is selected, all the entities within the project will be loaded into the entities panel to the right. Entities already associated with the subset will be displayed with a check in the checkbox. To associated one or more entities to the selected subset click on the entity check box or name. Selecting an entity that is already checked will unselect it from the subset.

To add all entities to the selected subset in one action, rather than select each entity individually select the ‘Select All’ option from the main menu or the Entity List context pop-up menu (accessed by right clicking within the entity list).

Unselect All buttonUnselect All Entities

To unselect all currently selected entities in the current subset in one action, rather than unselecting each entity individually select the ‘Unselect All’ option from the main menu or the Entity List context pop-up menu (accessed by right clicking within the entity list).
