Here you can set or freeze selections for the long term and store them in one of three tags. You can set either point, edge or polygon selections. You can then manipulate frozen selections at any time using these tags in the Object Manager.
Point Selection tag.
Edge Selection tag.
Polygon Selection tag.
You can change the name of a set or frozen selection in the Attribute Manager on the Basic Properties page; see Attribute Manager settings, below.
To set or freeze a selection:
- Select the elements (points, edges or polygons) that you want to freeze.
- If you want the selection to replace an existing frozen selection, select the frozen selection’s tag in the Object Manager. Otherwise, ensure that no selection tags are selected.
- Choose Selection / Set Selection.
Although you can freeze more than 10 selections per object, many commands operate on the first 10 only. For example, if you subdivide the object, only the surfaces in the first 10 selections are subdivided.
