I am using point clouds that have points that are coloured according to the scan data. These colours are sometimes the only way of identifying which points are needed to be selected for a certain operation. For example, if you wish to scale the entire point cloud according to a known distance between two identifiable points, you cannot because everything is turned yellow when selecting the object (pointcloud) to be scaled.
The only way around this is to draw a line between the desired points beforehand, turn off point snapping and use the end snap to select the correct positions of the original points based on the line ends to scale, - very dull!
At present, when you select a point cloud it highlights every single point and makes it yellow, making it impossible to distinguish between individual points - Is there a way to change this setting? for something like a 50% opacity yellow instead of a full yellow that overrides all other visible information?
Thank you, your script ToggleSelectionHighlight works perfectly!
It would be nice if the program core had an option to set the highlight to a 50% opacity or similar though if required - I can see presently you can set the colour, but not the opacity for selection highlight -
