2. From the pull-down menu, select the area object and select the Verify Inclusion option.

The Inclusion dialog box is displayed.

  • Type
    • Inclusion reports which elements are partially inside or touching the selected area.
    • Inclusion No Contact reports which elements are completely outside of the selected area.

    • 1 Level checks the inclusion status of elements one level down from the area in the specification tree.
    • All levels checks the inclusion status of all elements below the area in the specification tree.
