Selecting Chain-Pinned Elements
Different hosted elements can be selected in different ways:
o Tab-select to individually select chain-pinned elements.o Click-and-dragging across curtain walls or railings will also select individual hosted elements such as curtain grids, panels, mullions, top rails, handrails or supports (regardless of whether they are chain-pinned or not).
You may find that you cannot select chain-pinned elements by either method. This may be due to the ‘Selection Controls’
‘Select Pinned Elements’ can be turned on or off as desired; it may be useful to disable selection so that chain-pinned elements cannot be selected when click-and-dragging across curtain walls (such as curtain grids or mullions)
If ‘Select Pinned Elements’ is disabled, it applies to both pinned (parent elements) and chain-pinned (hosted elements) – thus, if a curtain wall is pinned, you would not be able to select the wall or the hosted mullions etc This is particularly noticeable when you click-and-drag across many curtain walls – you will see a forest of chain-pins
In this situation, it is well worth using the selection filter to select only the parent categories (eg. Walls)
