It's not exactly intuitive, you have to clear the part selection box, and select same in the selection box in the to match by column. Then the selection box in the copy column becomes checked. Now you have to expect that everything that is currently selected will become unselected, even though the part selection box is no longer checked! It almost makes sense! But it does work!
just do the same thing that you did to select them in reverse i just tried it not as easy as a global deselect but not too bad
