Options for Marquee all storey tool

The marquee all storey tool should have an option for selecting multiple storeys (not all storeys) for editing purposes

Hi Victor,

Is the "Filter Elements in 3D" option what you're looking for? (View > Elements in 3D View > Filter Elements in 3D)

I complete the wish hoping that GS adds the chance to edit the marquee tool by editing the levels of bottom and top (not the floors) .. I know this chance already exist but should be strongly improved ...

I would like the ability to adjust the marquee like a slab with the same pet palette tools.

Other than that what is there to improve? You can limit the stories as mentioned or you can define the height in 3D by setting the origin and then stretching up or down to the desired height (and snap to points).

I understood this request to mean that when using the heavy Marquee in the 2D Window, you could control which stories are effected by the heavy Marquee. The Filter Elements in 3D does not effect this function, all stories are altered by the heavy Marquee in the 2D Window whether they are visible in the 3D Window or not.

That's right. And I'd like that to apply when we hit ctrl+A to select all. It would be nice to have the option to select on all the chosen stories.

It's really about time the Marquee got it's own settings dialog like all the other tools, where some of these things can be set.

Pet palette editing and a keyboard shortcut to switch between single story and all story mode are longstanding wishes!

Cheers,

I am expecting more flexibility..
ArchiCAD & Graphisoft helped me a lot in my inflatable marquee project.
My only limitation...When I go for selecting multiple storeys...it selects all..
Needs editing freedom per storey..But I am hopeful this issue will be addressed in the next update..
Now my eyes are on next update now. If there is one do bring that into my knowledge please.

Thanks David. You hit the hail right on the head. I also like the suggestion for the marquee tool to have its own settings dialogue where one can manipulate options. A pet palette box is also welcome. Did GS listen and grant our wishes in AC15?

I think I had a wish for this about 20 years ago, I can't tell you how many time I have had to repeat the process on several stories just to not mess with the roof. I like to treat the roof separate (as it does it's own thing), but stretch everything else the same.
