Can someone please enlighten me how I can edit an object within a group. This is after I have pressed shift control to select the object. Now, I would like to actual select surfaces, edges, etc within the object, but shift control only lets me select the object.
Hi - for direct manipulation of subobject edges or surfaces, you can turn on the Sub-objects option in the Selection Filters toolbar and then window-select a surface or an edge. You might have to turn off Points/Vertices and/or Curves/Edges, etc. to be able to select what you need.
(FWIW, this has been tuned and I find that it’s easier in the Rhino 7 WIP to sub-object select elements of objects that are grouped without having to deal with filters)
As a quick alternative, use the Isolate feature as @piem proposed or use RemoveFromGroup and AddToGroup.
Hi - you should be able to sub-object select edges and polysurface vertices but not faces with CtrlShift in Rhino 6.
When you turn on Sub-objects in the filters, you should be able to window-select a face (without using CtrlShift).
If this above is not possible on your system, please export your settings to a *.ini file and I can check if there’s something going on there.
Note, as I wrote above, this works better in Rhino 7.
