Q - question

How to select objects inside an existing polyline or circular border?

A - answer If you need to select all objects inside a border defined by an existing polyline or circle, you can either use the WP/CP option of the object selection prompt and pick the individual polyline vertices, or you can use the WPS utility.

Load the WPS.LSP utility (see www.cadstudio.cz/download) and then use the WPS command or the transparent 'WPS option on the "Select objects:" prompt of any AutoCAD edit command. Pick the polyline or circle and all the objects inside it will be selected.

Finish the command to use the selected objects. If you use the standalone (not the transparent) WPS command, you can access its selection set in subsequent editing commands with the "P" (as Previous selection set) option.

The command prompts:

Command: MOVE
Select objects: 'wps
