QSELECT is an AutoCAD command that I started using a few versions back.
It is a command that lets you filter specific items out of the whole drawing or an already selected set of objects.
If you enter QSELECT on the command line a dialog box comes up.
The first thing you need to do is specify if you want to apply the parameters to a selection set or the whole drawing.
Next you need to specify an object type (circles, splines, polylines...etc)
Then further define what you are looking for by selecting a specific property (color, lineweight, diameter...etc)
Next you need to tell it if you want all these items selected or removed by selecting an operator and a value depending on your object type and properties.
So, if I want to select every green circle within a drawing I would set it as follows:
APPLY TO: Entire Drawing
This command has a lot of options and is very powerful. I use it often.
