Wish: _SelLast after _Array, I would like to see also the origin object in the selection


#1

Hi…,

when I _Array an object and then use _SelLast, the original object is missing in the selection. In theory this is right, but I would like that the original object is also in the selection.

What do you think?

Thanks

Hi MIchael - if you run the dash version _-SelLast you can set whether to deselect the current selection before selecting. Does that help at all? (I do understand the problem of discoverability here…)

Hi Pascal,

good to know, but this option doesn’t help, all is selected without the origin.

Hm?

Hi Michael - Yeah… pre-selection is the key… if -SelaLast > DeslelectOthersBeforeSelect=No, and I select an object, then call array, the original is selected at the end of the command and SelLast adds the arrayed objects, keeping the original selected.

Hi Pascal,

fine, now this works. I hope I can remember that, when I need it. :wink:

Thank you again and take care
