Hammer Selection Modes Toolbar
From Valve Developer Community
The Selection Mode Toolbar is used to determine how groups and solid entities will affect the selecting of objects.
The Selection Mode Toolbar allows you to switch between the following modes:
- In this mode, clicking or selecting an object that is contained in a group or solid entity will also select all objects in that group or entity. It has no effect on the behavior of VisGrouped objects. See Grouping and VisGrouping for more information on how to place objects in groups.
- In this mode, clicking on an single object contained in a group will only select the object. The group will not be used. However, if it's a brush contained in a solid entity, the entire entity will be selected.
- In this mode, all groups and solid entities will be ignored. Clicking on a brush that is contained in a solid entity will only select the brush. The rest of the entity will remain unselected. Note that this is the same as using the Toggle Ignore Groups on the Map Operations toolbar.
