IS THERE A DE-SELECT COMMAND?

Recommended Posts

It's quite annoying when, having set up a view to render, you realize something is selected and has an orange outline. You then need to exit the view to deselect (click off the drawing objects) and then go back to the view.

Can you de-select all items at the touch of a button?

Don't you just hold the shift key down to select more items or hold the shift key down to de-select less items.

Each item you select while holding down the shift key either adds or subtracts form your selection group.

The op did not say what tool he currently had active.

^ This is the important bit. Shift-click would only be useful if selection was already active. Otherwise, X-X or ESC is the best option.

I think this is a Situation where X + X should work.

I was used to click in free space to deselect everything, which works

as long there is a free space without objects.

A little comfort may be that you can can do this After you rendered a View

Without destroying the Rendering, if you forgot it before.

(In most cases ?)
