[Fixed] Shift-select layers


Recommended Posts

  • Contributor


Is shift select option ever going to be introduced? 

The lack of that option in Zbrush forced to be buy a 3rd party plugin that helped to manage subtools.

But I don't think anyone has done any 3rd party scripts here. 

But this is a "goes without saying" option. I don't even know how you can develop a modern application without the ability to select layers or files.

It's necessary to select multiple layers whether it's drawing, sculpture,or deleting,This's a very useful and very basic function in most software.

But in 3DCOAT which seems unable to do this,Does anyone know what to do?

The only thing you can do at the moment is adding layers to a Group. Then you can delete a group. Not saying this is ideal but currently the only way. 

This would need to be done early in the process to be efficient.

Here in 2021.57, from a Google search. I wanted to shift-select multiple layers in the Paint room / Textura, to hide multiple layers simultaneously using the eye icon on the layers panel. OR, click, hold, and drag like in Photoshop.

Right now there can be a blank layer created by exporting to Photoshop. If you come back to the project and don't remember what's on that layer, it's a pain to click off 20+ other layers to check it.
