Clash Detection Dialog, Criteria Tab

Contains controls to select the criteria to include in the clash detection job. The elements in Set A are checked against the elements in Set B. The elements in Set A display in red and elements in Set B display in blue. You can either drag the reference into the set list box or right-click the level, reference, or named group and select Copy and then paste it into the appropriate set list box. Only elements visible in a view are included in the clash detection; turning off an element removes it from the clash detection.
