I know the Select Data tool exists because of its documentation here:


However, when I search for the tool in ArcGIS Desktop 10.5 it does not appear. In fact, I can't find where any Model Only Tools are located.

Is there some trick to finding these like turning them on or downloading them separately?

I found the answer hidden away here:


Click Insert > Model Only Tools and choose the tool you want to add.

  • Alternatively, right-click anywhere in the model and click Model Only Tools, then choose the tool you want to add.
