Selection commands

In the Edit menu, you'll see some new commands under the other selection commands:

Continue Selection

to select a node based on the pattern of the last two nodes you selected

Undo Selection

to remove the last-selected node from the selection set

Grow Selection

to add closest siblings of selected nodes to the selection set

Shrink Selection

to shrink outer edges of a selection set

Select Between

to select all nodes between two selected nodes (the two most recently selected nodes)

These all have corresponding keyboard shortcuts for easy access.

Select by type

The palette in the sidebar contain selection operations for several types of elements:

  • smooth curves
  • sharp corners
  • lines
  • handles
  • anchors
  • components

Each type allows for three selection operations

  • ( + ) add elements of type to current selection
  • ( - ) subtract elements from current selection
  • ( ) select only elements of type from current selection
