selecting all nodes in shape

Recommended Posts

Select all point on path when Im edit it by Node tool

Its helpful when you edit compound path and you need to leave it compound without breaking. In Illustrator with white arrow tool we can press alt key and click on path to select all point on path in Corel we call the same action by pressing ctrl+shift with shape tool. Can we ask for that in designer please.

Ctrl + A (standard keypress for select all) will select all nodes on a path.

Is this not adequate for your scenario?

Aammppaa has a good suggestion, and also, you can click once with the Node Tool and then create a bounding box around multiple or all nodes at once.

ctrl A select all point in edited shape but I mean to select only points on one closed path so if you edit something with hole and press ctrl A all points are select not only hole or only around hole in other apps you have choice to select one interesting you shape without touching another, it is more important when you have more complicated shapes with many holes. I can click point by point or draw rectangle afrter rectangle  but it was be a lot easier if we have a special short key to use...

@siwyjaszyThanks for the clarification. I don't have Illustrator so wasn't aware of the specifics.

I believe that there are significant improvements coming in 1.7 that relate to node manipulation and selection, so there may be something that will help with this.

For example…
