Selecting Multiple References?

timothy_jumptimothy_jump Member Posts: 22 EDU
I have two lines highlighted/selected. To set multiple references I've currently only found it takes multiple steps to do this (select lines/select parallel in one step, then re-select the lines/select equal in the next step).Is there a way to set parallel and equal (and even more references) in one step?

    I do miss this feature of SolidWorks.
    It would be nice to have the selection sustained after adding constraints.

    I know that will conflict when you select the tool first, so perhaps the behavior would be different  for each method.
    Select tool, select two objects, (constraint added, selection cleared), select two objects, (constraint added, selection cleared) etc.
    Select two two objects, select tool (constraint added), select tool (constraint added), spacebar (deselect)

    Any plans to allow this functionality? We import large DWG sketch files, convert the lines, and adjust as needed. Deleting the many references one by one makes me miss a more mature cad platform.
