Wish for multiple miter with Frame Generator knots (multi-selection support)

Status: Under Review

With the attached sample (2014 Beta1), FG did a good job. All miters between the same-sized tubes showed up well. But it's been some work, doing that all.

 

Why?

- A frame knot with 3 members needs 2+1 = 3 miter actions 

- A frame knot with 4 members needs 3+2+1 = 6 miter actions

- A frame knot with 5 members needs 4+3+2+1 = 10 miter actions

- A frame knot with 6 members needs 5+4+3+2+1 = 15 miter actions

 

Therefore I'd like the ability to cross window select all members of a FG knot, and then doing the needed miter work automatically.
