This isn't quite true. Option dragging the mouse doesn't work as I described because in orthographic views the concept of moving in and out 3-dimensionally doesn't apply. There is another (more controlled way) to do what I had in mind.

Select the eye tool and then type in a location in the location bar. For an East elevation with a new model the location of the eye point is x=25' y=0' and z=25'. If you increase the value of x so it is larger than the eastern-most piece of your model you should have no problems selecting or trimming any object in the model.

Suggestions 1 and 3 from my previous messge still apply, and are unchanged.
