Re: Picking coinciding parts for an item balloon.

Thanks for the suggestion. It is a bit clunky but it works well and you don't have to worry about setting the visibility and worrying about view reps ect.

 

I would be nice fot the "Select other" to work or by not having to click on an edge :/

 

Think I might add this to the wishlist for next release.

Yes it is still a bit clunky. Not sure if you noticed when you use "attach balloon" you can then use the selection tool.

I missed that the first time round... unfortunately it only makes a long process (when being repeated often) a slight bit shorted (or even longer if you have to hover and wait for the "Select other" HUD).

Great idea guys! that definately goes in the column of " If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying"! I like it and it isn't too time consuming.
