Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to select brush and not the surface (get access to Brush settings)


Problem is that I can't select the brush geometry by clicking the brush.. I can only select it from the World outliner. This is pretty annoying not sure if it's intended but anyway works very inconsistently.

So here is a pic of clicking the brush with left mouse: alt text

And here is the brush selected on world outliner: alt text

Now I have seen this broblem posted many times with suggestions of double clicking and some other tricks but nothing really works.

And right as I posted this I finally found the solution:

To get the brush selected you want to left click the brush once (whatever surface) and then you want to left click a EDGE of the brush to actually select the brush (clicking surface or origin will not work).

Hope this is help for somebody else since I found zero info on such selection style.
