Is there a way to transform some, but not all parts?

Sat Jan 10, 2015 2:15 pm

Say I have 20 items on the build platform: Is there a way to move some of them simultaneously, but not all? I know I can move one, and I can move all. But say I want to move a group of 10 of them? This applies to rotate and scale as well: Would be really nice to be able to rotate a group around the center pivot of the group, or scale a group about the center pivot of the group.

I would be nice if you could highlight multiple models in the Models panel, and your transformations only apply to them.

I'd love to see this. As far as I can tell, you can only transform one part at a time.

You can do two operations on _all_ parts: shift-option to rotate drag and shift-command-drag to slide round x/y.

But it'd be great to be able to shift-select (or command-select) a subset of parts, then rotate or drag them, or bring up the properties dialog so that you could (for example) precisely rotate a bunch of objects by 90 degrees.
