Yea - I've been thinking I should include that for plugins that consists of multiple files packaged in .zip.

Outer Edges added to selection filters and Quad-Face Loop now accepts multiple start-edges in my internal build. Got a couple of other things to finish before I release it though.

I will look into that.


(you edited you post? you mentioned about selecting from active vs all - well, I have been planning a complete new set of selection tools, where you interactively build your selection)

Yeh, I edited my post because part of it didn't make sense. :shock:

=======================

Another Bug; Select Edge Loops?

If after an edge loop is selected, then using the Layers Toolbar (PC) dropdown list to move the edge to a new layer does not work. Interestly though, using Entity Info to move the selected edge to a new layer does.

[Edit]
Select Default Front and Default Back not working?

hm.. will have to look at that. I never use that toolbar. PC or OSX?

Might be a bug there. Thought I'd fixed it earlier, but maybe it slipped through... :/

Saying that, as it works now, the edges also needs to have the same material for the Select Connected by Material to select the neighbouring face... Might have to revise this function. ...and I wonder why I haven't added one that doesn't select connected....

This is very odd. But it seems to be a Sketchup bug. I can't see anything in my code that'd do this. And as you say, the Entitiy Info works. I'll try to forward this to Google.

Ah - took me a little while to understand this one, but being able to select edges where the angle between connected faces are larger than a given angle?
This would be something that filters an existing selection? Or make a new selection in the active space?

Selection Submenu - Currently there's two kinds of modifiers.
The explanations are a bit confusing for me... I have alot of experience in Electronic Radio Frequency / Broadcast Engineering, where Filters are a very important device. So when I think of Filters I think of them in that respect. See if you think I'm correct here:

ThomThom wrote:One filters out the type of entity you want.
This would be a 'Pass' filter?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Band-pass_filter

ThomThom wrote:The other deselects the entity you specify.
This is a 'Reject' Filter? (also sometimes called a 'Trap' or 'Notch' Filter from the way the signal looks on a Spectrum Analyser.)

    I think so ... from what I understood of that definition of filters... unfamiliar territory to me.

    I think it would be a useful tool for working with drawings imported from autocad.
    drawings with many lines, could detect lines, what not intersect
