Project asks for selection when I already have selected the objects


#1

Hi,
selected a load of rivets (grouped) then run Project command and it asks I select the objects to project, but they are already selected, when I select one of the grouped rivets, just that rivet highlights.

No way can I start selecting them one by one.

I also had the feeling it had accepted that then I selected surface to project to, yet nothing happened.

Hi Steve - are there objects in the group other than curves?

Hi Pascal,
selecting the rivet circles and screw double circles they are block instances.

Yeah… I guess that means that the command cannot tell from the pre-selection, since blocks can contain anything, what to do. It’s making you pick the curves you want from the block instances.

Hi,
What would be a solution ?

I reckon clone, explode, project with delete input =yes.

Cheers
