Sorry that the Forum site is defeating me - how does one send a query?
I have ended up with ghosts in the model. In the attached (most of) the vertical reinforcing bars have become impossible to grip and re-allocate tags. These are extruded cylinders and have gone through group and explode cycles. I do need to tag them so I can switch them off. Any thoughts?
I also notice you are assigning tags to edges and faces. All edges and faces should be created and remain untagged. Only groups and components should get tags. Because of the way you have tagged some geometry but other geometry is left untagged, some stuff disappears when you turn off a tag while other stuf doesn’t. Perhaps this is what you are seeing?
Thanks. I see the argument. The current situation is that can no longer grip the mis-handled entities - most of the rebar is not responding to the select in either encirclement or crossing mode. If I was able to resurrect these rebar entities and copy tu to a new drawing, then I could resolve them back out of any tag and then group and tag them. Any possible way to do that?
Since all of the geometry in your model is now connect due to not grouping, it’ll be a pain in the neck or somewhere else to repair this. Personally I think starting over would be the simplest and fastest way to deal with it. I would create a single rebar component (not group), give it the appropriate tag, and then use Move/Copy to make the linear arrays needed.
