    When selecting multiple objects, nodes, terrain points etc, it's quite easy to accidentally select one which isn't wanted. In those cases, how can we remove a specific thing from the selection without having to deselect all and start again?

    I didn't see any mention of this in the help file.

    That's not what I meant.

    Say I've selected these terrain points:
    [​IMG]
    And I then decide I'd like to de-select the ones outlined in red.

    Or I select these objects:
    [​IMG]
    And I'd like to deselect the one outlined in red.

    What I'm asking is: How do I make those de-selections?

    To deselect terrain nodes, use CTRL. For objects I don't know...

    I had tried Ctrl, but I'd been using that with 'click' rather than 'click and drag around the points'. Thanks.

    As for objects, that's something to add to the 'Improvements' thread.
