Changing the behavior of drag selection

By default, you can select items in Analyst's Notebook by touching them with the rectangle that opens when you drag on the chart surface. You can change this behavior so that items are selected only when the rectangle fully encloses them.

  1. Click File > Optionsto open the Options window.
  2. Click General and look for the check box next to Drag Selects Only Fully Enclosed Items.
  3. If the check box is clear, you must select it to change the behavior of drag selection.
  4. Click OK.
The behavior of drag selection changes for all charts. This setting persists until changed, regardless of the chart you are working on.
