Items Manager Functions

In the Items Manager, you can:

Make selections

The Items Manager is another option to make selections in your design. You can define a selection set in the Items Manager panel and launch tools from the adaptive menu. To make selections easier, you can filter items in the Items Manager by selecting All Items at the top and choosing an item type.

If you're using a keyboard and mouse/trackpad, hold the CTRL or Command key to select more than one item, or press the Shift key to select a range. For more information on making selections in Shapr3D, visit Selecting geometry.
