Hi DesuDeus, also in addition to that other "CloseCurve" plugin I've attached a new one here called "MarkOpenCurveStart" which may be useful.

What it will do is go through the selected curves and place a point object at the start point of any open curve in that selection, so that point will be marked and you can see where it is.

This new one will only work in MoI v2, to install it download and unzip the attached file and copy the 2 included files to the \commands subfolder instead of the v2 beta's main installation folder.

Then set up a shortcut key with MarkOpenCurveStart as the command, and then select curve and hit that key to trigger it.


That other "CloseCurve" function can possibly introduce a very tiny line segment into your outline which is something to kind of look out for, since that can then lead to teeny-tiny surfaces later on which tend to be kind of nice to avoid if possible.

Hi DesuDeus, you wrote:

Just a quick note - in MoI you don't need to hold down the shift key to do multiple selection.

It doesn't hurt anything to hold down shift, but it's not necessary, you can just click on the edges you want to select without shift and it will work the same.

Hi DesuDeus,

> Yeah but pitrak when I got 1 surface with more than 50
> curves its boring to select everything :P

There's a shortcut - just select one edge, then do Ctrl+A (or on the side pane click on Select / Sel all).

When you have an edge selected, then you can do a "select all" to select all the other edges on that one object.

Invert works in the same way, if an edge is selected then it will target edges.

Also if you select a single edge, it will also set window selection (where you click in an empty area and drag to make a selection box) to target edges as well.
