(ssadd [entity-name [selection-set]])

Add it to the selection set.

This function adds entity entity-name to selection-set or creates a new selection set (when ssadd is used without arguments). The ssadd function works in one of the three ways below:

Code Result
(ssadd) A new selection set is created with no entitys.
(ssadd entity-name) A new selection set is created containing entity-name as the only entity.
(ssadd entity-name selection-set) Adds the entity, entity-name, to an existing selection set, selection-set.

The new or revised selection set name is returned in a format similar to the following:

<Selection set: 26146268>

progeCAD can have more than one selection set open at a time.

(ssadd ent1 sset1) Adds ent1 to sset1.
