Select Elements in TBC Using Existing Polygon

Hi. I would like to know if there is a means of selecting elements within a project (points, lines, vectors etc.), using a pre-existing closed polygon/rectangle. 

 

I am trying to select a large number of points from a ground topo, within an existing closed polygon. I understand I can select using the 'Polygon Select' mouse method, but this is not the same; the polygon I have in my project is complex e.g. contains straight edges and curves, and is not easy to trace by hand (not to mention hugely time-consuming). 

 

The screenshot below shows the polygon and the area within which I wish to select.

 

I've used this same command in older (non-Trimble) sw. Wondering whether this function is either available or in the pipeline?

 

Many thanks in advance.
