Hello Don,

I've actually put copy, paste, deselect and clear on my right mouse button
pop-up menu.
Also, tend to deselect-all before any large select operations.

regards,

Phil

I too instinctively utter the same incantation ( amongst many four letter
ones ;-) to the great prottle beast in order to reduce the possibility of
unpredictable moves off the end of the A3 earth.


Strikes me that it would be so much easier if prottle ( on ALL of the
system ) followed the usual windows convention of <shift>+LMB+drag to add to
a selection & LMB+drag to set a selection.   This way you could reliably
clear a selection by dragging on an empty space.


Cheers

Don
