Which icon in selection choice for select all instances of current selection?


#1

Hi,
V5
I have arrayPolar’ed a shape and after using results to cut from a surface, I need to select all those shapes.
I thought there would be an option maybe entitled select all of current selection but cannot see one.

Which icon in selection choice for select all instances of current selection ?

an obvious icon would be a yellow simple object and a few more in black.

Hi Steve

In short, you can’t. Rhino doesn’t keep track of whether changes have been made (or haven’t been made) to geometry you’ve copied (which is basically what you are doing when arraying). The trick is to group them before you start using them - use sellast and add the original.

Hi Steve.

For repetitive objects you can use blocks.
(I’m on my phone now so not elaborate)
