Toolbar

BKG_Group is a program that makes working with unnamed groups a lot easier. All you have to do is make selections, the commands will do the rest. To keep everything tidy the program makes sure that entities are never part of more than one group and that redundant groups (with 0 or 1 entity) are automatically ungrouped.

There are four commands. The fifth and final tool in the toolbar is not a command. It is a toggle to change the group selection mode (pickstyle). You can also use the default keyboard shortcut Ctrl+H for this.

Available commands

BKG_GroupCreate or BGC
Creates an unnamed group.

BKG_GroupUngroup or BGU
Ungroups entities.

BKG_GroupAdd or BGA
Adds entities to a group.
When the command prompts you to select entities to add, group selection mode is temporarily switched off. If you want to add all the entities from another group you can manually toggle group selection mode on again. Alternatively you can also use BKG_GroupCreate.

BKG_GroupRemove or BGR
Removes entities from a group.
When the command prompts you to select entities to remove, group selection mode is temporarily switched off.
