There is likely an obvious answer to the question...but at this point I can't see the forest for the trees. I am attempting to load an S57 file into Global Mapper, select only COALNE objects, and export the selected coastline to a MATLAB file. Is there a better way to select the COALNE objects than line by line? Thanks

    You can use the Search->Search by Attributes menu command to find all features with some attribute, then you could select those and choose to copy to the clipboard, then paste in a new instance of Global Mapper and export.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks Mike,

    I'm not sure why but when I tried this yesterday with <Feature Type>=Shoreline as Text nothing was showing up. I must have had some other parameter set and did not realize it. It works fine now.
