Select Children

Adds the children of the selected object(s) to the selection. Contrary to the Select Children command of the same name (main menu: Edit) elements of any existing branches will also be selected.

Invert Selection

Inverts the current selection. Items that were selected become deselected and vice versa.

Creates a new layer and assigns the selected objects to that layer.

Remove from Layer

Removes the selected items from any layers.

The following commands are available for objects as well as tags.

All overridden settings will be deleted (and the object or tag will be deleted completely from the current Take in the override tree).
