Wish 1: The ability to select control points by double-clicking on a control polygon (“Rhino options > Mouse > Selecting > Make control polygon pickable”) was a great addition to Rhino 6 and I use it on a regular basis. It saves a lot of time. However, if there are nearby objects or a surface edge next to the picked control polygon, the Selection menu’s pop-up window appears and asks which object(s) the user wanted to select. If the user selects “control points”, Rhino will select only the two control points that are adjacent to the picked control polygon line and will “forget” about the double click with the LMB. Is there a way…
a) … to make Rhino “remember” the double click and add an additional option “control point row” in the Selection menu?
b) … to make Rhino prioritize the double click so that it selects the control point row instead of invoking the Selection menu?
Wish 2: After selecting a control point (or control points) and using “Select U” or “Select V” to select the U or V rows of control points, make it possible to quickly invert the selection by leaving a clickable command prompt named “Invert” in the command line. This will allow to conveniently invert the direction of selected rows when the initial selection was in the wrong direction.
I’m aware of the ability to invert the direction when using the “Select UV” tool, but it has two limitations: it requires several extra mouse clicks (including pressing Enter or RMB to end the command), and also does not work with pre-selected control point(s).
Using the Selection filter is slow and requires at least 4 mouse clicks to select the desired row of control points. Also, it will destroy the previously set group of objects in the selection filter, if there were any. Right-clicking on the “control points” inside the Selection filter window will revert to the previous selection of pickable objects, but that adds yet another mouse click.
