In SOLIDWORKS 2020, you can edit an existing selection set to add or remove items. You can also add items to multiple selection sets at once. The items that need to be added to a specific selection manager can simply be dragged from the Feature Manager design tree or from a selection set to the desired selection set.

Let’s create a new selection set. All the items that need to be added are selected from the tree.
