To limit the items EasyPower considers for selection, select the desired region. If you select Inside Box, a box pointer appears after you click OK. Use the left mouse button to drag the box pointer around the region you want to select.


Select Item Selection to have the items highlighted on the one-line, or Text to have those items listed on a Query text report.
