Before selecting any features, you may choose which types of features are eligible for selection by checking their layers on the Table of Contents Selection tab or Selection menu > Set Selectable Layers dialog.
However, if you are not in the habit of doing this first, or just like to have all layers available in your results because – hey, choices are nice – you can decide how these results will appear in the ArcFM Attribute Editor Selection tab.
By default the results are listed in drawing order, as set forth in the Display tab of the Table of Contents. So, if you ‘swipe’ a large section of your map, the results would display as follows.
If, however, you decide you would like the results returned in alphabetical order, go to the Tools menu > ArcFM Options. On the Attribute Editor tab, change the Layer Ordering to Alphabetical order.
Added bonus: if you want to have the number of selected features counted, as shown in the above image, while in the ArcFM Options dialog place a check next to Show status bar.
