In R20 and before, when using the mesh/split command, the original object remained selected. This made it very quick to break up CAD objects, by selecting the elements needed and using mesh-split-delete. The new behaviour now selects the newly created object, leaving the original object unchanged. So I now have to go back and re-select the original object before deleting the split-off polys. Is there a reason for this change?
The documentation for R21 says: ‘If you want to delete the separated part from the original object, you can choose Delete directly after Split since the selection is still active (this works only if you are in polygon mode).’ - so this is describing the old behaviour.
Would it be possible to get the old behaviour back, at least as an option, as the new way is inferior.
