Lasso function, Please

This function was discussed at least a year or two ago. A Lasso type function where I can circle a set of objects to select them easily and quickly. I have been trying to select multiple objects by organizing said objects in layers/folders and selecting said folder as a group. After trying this for a long while now, still this is not a very easy and quick operation. The Lasso function is still a better option.

I would like to have this option as well. Much easier and quicker than organizing things in groups.

Area selection is being beta tested at the moment, coming very soon.

Certainly hoping so. You mentioned that it would be a couple weeks…back in April 2019 :frowning:

It’s live on mac and coming to iOS in a week. At the moment it works only with mouse, Pencil support is coming soon.

This is exciting and a bit frustrating. Please don’t make the iPad only users second-class users.

We are keeping the iPad and mac versions feature par.

@realdrogo: Different input devices require slightly different implementation. It was probably easier to do the Mac version first and get the dynamics of the lasso figured out before adapting the input device handling to the iPad and Pencil.

Yep - that is correct, we have already started the Pencil area select testing :slight_smile: If anyone wants to participate, let me know (daniel@shapr3d.com). We will do the next round of testing in the upcoming few weeks.

Please add me to the beta testing for the the pencil lasso.

Thanks
