Selecting nodes by type


To select nodes by node type:

  1. Choose By Structure ... from the Select menu.

    A Select by Structure dialog appears.

  2. Toggle on the desired set of node types from the Node types popup menu of the dialog.

    The any choice in the popup menu matches any node type.

  3. Enter 0 (zero) as an arc count in the Count: entry field.
  4. Select eq from the Comparison popup menu of the dialog.
  5. Click Select to start the search.

    Nodes with the specified node types are selected in the active window.

    A series of searches is possible; if you hold down the shift key while clicking Select, the matching nodes are added to the current selection (rather than replacing it).
