Selection Filter

A lot of pain is caused by the selection filter.  Its a great tool when you use it willingly, but several people have voiced curiosity as to why solidworks throws you into a selection filter automatically.  SOLIDWORKS does not do this automatically.  The filter gets turned on when you hit the "X" key.  So to turn it off without having to show the selection filter tool bar, just hit the F6 key.
