Subgroup or Nested Edge/Face Selection

Just wondering if anyone knows any extensions that would allow one to select edges and faces of subgroups or nested groups? I’m not sure if Vertex Tools could do this? Also Selection Toys seems to be limited to Current Selection.

*For reference in Rhino there is a command called Move Edge or Move Face which allows you to select the edges or faces of separate solid geometries. Also 3ds Max allows you to select multiple objects and apply an Edit Mesh or Edit Poly and select the vertices, Edges or Faces of Multiple separate objects at once.

If you want to select let’s try Curic Deep Select or select then move

This is not intended in the SketchUp core but out of context selection kind of exists by accident. Some extensions expose it but it’s really just a hack that could stop SketchUp from working in the future, or even crash SketchUp. Also it isn’t supported by native tools such as Move. While it can be useful, use it at your own risk.

Good to know. Thanks for the heads up!
