Select and Select Region Tools
To modify an object or sub-object, it must first
be selected. Clicking on the Select tool icon makes it yellow, indicating
it is active. The curser can then be used to select objects or sub-objects.
To append to the selection, hold down the Ctrl key before selecting
the new object. To subtract from the selection, hold down the Alt key
before re-clicking on the object. The user can decide what type of objects
- such as Geometry, Lights or Cameras - will be enabled for selection
during a session. "All" makes all objects selectable. In addition,
objects within a certain region can be selected by first positioning
the curser, holding down the left mouse button and dragging either a
rectangular or a circular boundary around the objects or groups of objects
being selected. An irregular boundary can also be clicked around the
objects or sub-objects to be selected.
