View Full Version : New Plugin: Selection Filter ON/OFF

07 July 2012, 11:12 PM
When you are creating a huge scene or even when you are animating, selecting something in the Editor view can become frustrating because some objects get in the way or something that you want to select is nested inside or is behind something else.

One way to make the selection task easier is to use selection filters to prevent the selection of certain types of objects. This way, only the relevant objects that you want and needwill be able to be selected and all others will simply be ignored.

The problem with this is that the Selection Filter options are inside the Select menu and the Selection Filter submenu is not capable of being disconnected and changed into a floating panel. So, you would need to disconnect the whole Select menu (and this menu is quite large).

That is why I created the Selection Filter ON/OFF plugin.

That will come in handy I think. :-)

I've posted this on as well.
