View Full Version : reorder vertex

12-16-2003, 07:04 PM
hi all,
can anyone tell me if it is possible to change the vertex number?

so I select pSphere1.vtx[165]
and tell it to now be pSphere1.vtx[1],

after I have told pSphere1.vtx[1] to be anaother number of course ;)

any ideas??

or alternatively... can you get maya to return the selected components in the order thay were selected?

select -r pSphere1.vtx[2] ;
select -tgl pSphere1.vtx[1] ;

print (`ls -flatten -sl`);

maya returns...

whis is a real pain....

Hey John,

Actually, this came up today at work. I haven't tried it yet, but if you query the Undo buffer, it should have the list of vertices in the order they're selected prior to Maya collapsing them into the [#:#] bit.

Yep the undo thing works.

The only downfall is that you can only query the last event. So you will have to query the event, put it in a variable, then perform an undo, then query the event again which will return the action previous to the last.

It doesn't matter how old a thread is. The same problems come up again and again which is why we iterate over old threads.
