Tip and Trick Detail
Why can I only select once without deselecting objects?
*Applies to: AutoCAD R12, 13, 14, 2000, 2000i, 2002, 2004 and 2005*

If you are experiencing selecting problems were you can only select on screen once and then trying to select other objects causes the first set to become deselected.  You will want to make sure that the System Variable PICKADD is set to the value of 1.  This allows you to continue selecting on screen while keeping the previous objects selected as well.  If PICKADD is set to 0 then the SHIFT key must be pressed to add additional objects to the currently selected ones.
