Creates a selection set based on a selected object.
SSX creates a selection set that contains objects that are either exactly like the selected "template" object or, if you adjust the filter list, very similar to that object. You can enter SSX either at the Command prompt to create a selection set, which can be accessed with the Previous option, or you can enter (SSX) in at any Select Objects prompt.
Select object/<None>: Use an object selection method to select a template object, or press Enter for none.

This example demonstrates selecting a line to use as a template object, but removing the requirement (filter) that the objects must be on the same layer as the selected line.
Select object/<None>: Select a line
Current Filter: ((0 . "LINE") (8 . "0") (39 . 2.0) (62 . 1) (210 0.0 0.0 1.0))
Enter filter option [Block name/Color/Entity/Flag/LAyer/LType/Pick/Style/Thickness/Vector]: layer
>>Layer name to add/<RETURN to remove>: Press Enter to remove the layer filter
Current Filter: ((0 . "LINE") (39 . 2.0) (62 . 1) (210 0.0 0.0 1.0))
Enter filter option [Block name/Color/Entity/Flag/LAyer/LType/Pick/Style/Thickness/Vector]: Press Enter
To use the selection set for a subsequent command, enter P (Previous) at the next Select Objects prompt.
