Drafting, Solid Edge, Tips

Introduced in ST6, the Directional Fence selection method is the default setting when picking objects in Draft and ordered Part sketches. What does it do? Can I restore the pre-ST6 default? This is what it does

Dragging from left to right selects only geometry completely inside the fence as shown below.

Dragging from right to left selects inside and overlapping geometry within the fence as shown below.

The Select tool method is defined in the Command Bar dropdown, see below. Last picked value is remembered in your current session, but reset each time you restart Solid Edge.
