View Full Version : selecting specific operators

04 April 2008, 03:16 AM
Hi there,

I have a Bunch of objects with poly reduction operators on them and i was wondering if there's an easy way to select all of them at once? I have very limited scripting knowledge but I thought there might be a way that I could select all of a specific operator type through scripting.
Otherwise I'd have to go through and manually select them one by one.

select one of the ops, set the ppg to recycle, and then add to the selection the various objects, it should trap the same op of the same kind for all selected and allow multi edit.

Oh, that works fine for editing them but say if i wanted to delete all of a specific operator, wherever it appears in your scene? Is there a way to actually select the operators themself?

open the script editor, when you select one operator you can see the command in the history. Copy this command line to the script editor and change the object name with the wildcard symbol "*" .

when you now run the command it will select all the operators in the scene.
