For example, the following filter selects all circles except the ones with a radius
greater than or equal to 1.0:

Object =Circle

**Begin NOT

Circle Radius = 1.00

**End NOT

X, Y, Z Parameters

Define additional filter parameters depending on the object. For example, if you select
Line Start, you can enter the X, Y, and Z coordinate values that you want to filter.

In the filter parameters, you can use relative operators such as < (less than) or
(greater than). For example, the following filter selects all circles with center
points greater than or equal to 1,1,0 and radii greater than or equal to 1:

Object = Circle

Circle Center X = 1.0000 Y = 1.0000 Z = 0.0000

Circle Radius = 1.0000

the items to filter. For example, if you select the object type Color, Select displays
a list of colors to choose for the filter.
