To select an object, move the mouse pointer over it, and then left click once to select it. When hovering an object the label class color should increase in intensity. This is an indication that the object can be selected.

Selecting multiple objects or adding more objects to a current selection

If you want to select more objects, you can easily do so by pressing and holding “Shift” and then left-click on those that you want to select. You can also use the marquee function, which allows you to left-click, hold, and then drag an area in which you want to select all objects.

Select all objects

You select all labels label(s) by pressing “ctrl” + “a” or “cmd” + “a”.
