How To Select Multiple Records From Lists

Once you have entered a List, you can Select, Cancel a Selection, Add, Delete or Edit records.

Using The Spacebar

You may use the arrow keys to move onto a record, then use the Spacebar to select or deselect the record. The selected record is highlighted in in color when you press the Spacebar - this means the record is tagged. Pressing the Spacebar again will deselect the record, removing the highlighted bar and removing the item from any list you are in the progress of tagging.
