BKG_SelectTools offers two special commands to select previous and new entities.

Available commands

BKG_SelectToolsStart or BSTS
Starts the BKG_SelectTools application.
The application will automatically start when the program is loaded.

BKG_SelectToolsEnd or BSTE
Ends the BKG_SelectTools application.

'BKG_SelectToolsPrevious or 'BSTP
Selects the previous selection in the current space.
This command is similar to the standard _Previous selection mode. But it can also be used if no command is active to create a pre-selection. A separate selection set is stored for model space and for each paper space layout.

'BKG_SelectToolsNew or 'BSTN
Selects the new entities in the current space.

Entities on layers that are off, frozen or locked, and entities that are invisible (after using the _Isolate command for example), are excluded from the selections.

If you enter the names of the last two commands while inside a BricsCAD command you have to include the apostrophe.
