"Bridge & Drop"?-

Is there a script that executes the Bridge command, and then "drops" the Edge Selection?

Someone around here may have posted it, either as an lscript, or as an ahk(?) script. I remember seeing this come up before...

Yeah, it was "(something) & Drop", wasn't it? But I believe it was a different operation.

If Bridge had a Numeric Panel (it doesn't, since it's a "command" and not a "tool"), there could be a checkbox that would Enable/Disable "Drop After Action".

IMO, giving COMMANDS options if nothing is selected (or some such mechanism) would add a bit of flexibility to LWM.

Attached are 3 scripts including a bridge then deselect script. There is also bandglue deselect, and connect deselect. The original was written by evenflcw in this thread: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?114624-connect-then-deselect

Thanks Lertola, that's good research!

Nice to know my memory isn't going south like the rest of me.

After reading through the aforementioned thread, it makes me wonder if an improved version can be written in python... I know the original lscript could be improved by wrapping the connect / drop selection in a undogroupbegin(); / undogroupend(); pair. One undo entry on the stack that way...

easy fix, just add two lines at the end of the .ls script

Wish I could say that.
