Composite Editor should open to selected wall

The composite editor should open to the composite of the wall selected.

The best way to handle this is to use the right click context menu on a single wall and use "Edit Selected Composite / Profile..." I think any other approach assumes you are carrying out general management of attributes.

As @DGSketcher said,  right click context menu is the solution.

Yes I know about that option and of course that works well. My point is that when you select a wall and open building materials then the building materials for that wall are preselected in the building material editor. I think that with a wall selected and then i open the composite editor then the composite for that wall should be pre-selected.

I got your idea and you are right we should wish for that, at least it can be done in general there are many simple features can’t be done any way, good luck.
