Title: Tip: RayCast-Select
Post by: Raxx on January 11, 2010, 07:15:01 pm
I figured I might as well mention this since I don't think it's covered anywhere in a manual or tutorial. If you've already discovered it, good for you ;)

There's an easy way to select multiple objects, faces, edges, and points by clicking and dragging while holding the CTRL key. Naturally the select tool (http://anim8or.com/manual/buttons/b_arrow_s.gif) must be active. Try it out if you haven't to see its usefulness!

On a side note, holding CTRL while knifing only allows you to knife faces point-to-point on the same face (splits that face). Doing this does not knife any other edges or faces. SHIFT on the other hand only cuts edges and won't connect with pre-existing points.

That's cool!

I think I've heard of the selection tip before, but I forgot about that... And the knife tool tip is great!

There has been a topic with several more useful tips, it doesn't hurt to remind it:
