Selecting only "these" path/nodes

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

Sorry if it sounds like obvious, but actually, I've still not found any way to instantly select —all— external nodes (or the full external path) on the basic following example:

Any idea?

Thanks for the help.

Hi Tazintosh,

There's currently no way to select all nodes instantly yet.

Drag a selection around all the shape, then press ctrl and drag a selection around the inner nodes to subtract them from the selected nodes.

 

[EDIT] There's a shortcut available: ⌘ (cmd)+A as already noted by ronnyb and paolo. Sorry about this. My bad.

Hi MEB and thanks for the answer.

 

Obviously, I knew how to workaround this and the example was ultra basic for the purpose of the question :)

But on much more complex shapes, it's start being a huge time consuming task for something that should be instant.

Hope you have this planned soon!

 

Thanks for the quick answer BTW.

Cheers.

Hey guys,

 

This is not working for me.

Looks like it's because I'm only running the Apple Store version then? (non beta)

If then, good to know this is now possible.

Thanks.

Yeah, so that's exactly the point of my original question :)

In Illustrator, you ⌥⇧ click a node to achieve this, it's quite handy (again, my example is basic, of course it's easy to workaround…)

 

Could we move this to feature request then?  :wub:
