Anyone know if there is a "CTRL-A" type command to select multiple lines of text in Toaster CG (vs. the tedious Shift-select one line at a time)?

CTRL-A used to work before build 3866 (the one i'm still on).

Errr, correction: Currently, the manual way to do it is CTRL-select while in modify mode (not "Shift-select")

I'm looking for a quicker keyboard command.....

It is a lot quicker to lasso the lines of text from the 'Layout' on the right. Also 'Shift' and 'Ctrl' select work as expected.

Gordon,

Lasso is indeed the answer to grabbing groups of elements in Toaster CG. I did not know I could do this. Thanks for the tip!

Shift-select puts me into "rotate" modify mode.

Ctrl-select picks allows me to pick multiple items, one item at a time.

You can use 'Shift' select and 'Ctrl' select in the Layout on the right.
