There are quite a few random select/random deselect scripts out there already, but of course one more is always welcome. Many thanks

How about a toggle for select / deselect, so you can also use it to deselect from a current selection.


Imagine you wanted to random select some of your model, but not all, the user could select the main portion, then run your script and deselect from the current selection.

I suppose you could hide the polys you didn't want selected, run the script, and then unhide.

But just an idea, and it saves an operation.
