How to Close All Active Edits?

Escape doesn’t do it on my computer?

Hmmm…

I get this: Double click a few times to get all the way in. Esc several times to get all the way out.

Thanks Let me try that - its a rather large file

By the way - How do you upload those nice demonstration videos on here?

Maybe you need to hit Esc more?

Are you still using SU2014?

It’s a secret. If I told you…:smiley:

I use LICEcap to make the GIF. Then just upload it as if uploading an image or a SketchUp file.

Control-A selects All, Control-shift-A selects None.

Is LiceCap Free - and where is the direct download site?

I was able to back out of a group by using your suggestion. tks, but not on an exploded section

I don’t see Ctrl+Shift+A doing anything on my PC.

It is free. A quick Google search will turn it up.

Define “exploded section”.

If you explode a group or component, you cannot unexplode it without using Undo. Of course that’ll undo any changes you made.

You shouldn’t need to explode a group or component to make changes to it.

I was taking a guess, it’s command-shift-a on Mac. What is the menu item below Select All in the Windows version?

Found it out. On Windows it’s Control-T.

windows thanks again …

But that won’t back you out of an open group or component.

I reckon you could click on nothing in the outliner window if you had it open.

Shep

The question was only how do you get to having no selection.

@colin

This implies to me that Billy wants to get out of group/component edit mode, too.

Ya Contrl T!! thanks Colin!

Funny how such a little thing is common to others

Yes, I agree, hadn’t noticed that part. But: “Ya Contrl T!! thanks Colin!” sounds like control-t will do for now.

We had discussed the absence of the “Close All” command previously (I think on SketchUcation.) And I believe I had posted a snippet then. But instead of tracking it down, I just whipped out another example.
