My point was I know what you THINK you know what you want to do but without knowing what it is we can’t offer practical suggestions and it might be that there is a way to do it without selecting the li.
It’s like you asking “How do I pick up this hammer?”
I’m asking WHY you want a hammer in the first place. If it’s to drive in a screw then you are using the wrong tool.
However, I’ll leave that there.
