Per evenflcw's earlier post I'm not sure I can fix that but I can look at it...just not sure when that'll happen. I wonder if changing the order of the clear commands will mean you switch to points mode after running the script.

that might bee but again then the problem is back if you connect polys cause then it will switch to points as they where last in the list then

Well the hack workaround for now is to remove the sel clear command based on what you don't want deselected. However the connect command will still work either way. See the two attached. So if you run ConnectPlusPolys it won't switch to points mode and vice versa. Not really an elegant solution but at the very least it gives you a tool that you can use.

So I found the "Deselect All" command in Modeler. The updated lscript is attached. I just did a quick test and it'll only deselect what you have currently selected when you run Connect. However edges still get deselected as it looks like doing that is part of the Connect operation.

That selection remains for such an operation goes against what I would claim to be the standard behaviour/workflow in Modeler. And I can't figure out a good motivation why it this should be different from the norm.

Do a poly loop selection, run the connect tool several times, makes for a really fast way to add edge loops. I use it all the time.

This issue has also something to do with LW selection model.

Imagine that if you are going to select some polys on a mesh with a selection already, the previous selection is dropped:


Now with this you don't make people want to drop selection all the time, because there's no need if they just want to move on to something else. Shift still would work to Add to the selection and Ctrl to Remove from the selection.
Because right now, if you do a selection you're locked on it, left clicking will just deselect polys from the current selection and that could be easily done with a modifier.
Well and Undo for selections... that would be a big one right now.

But this way there would be much less need to drop selections, but you could still do your example of running the Connect tool several times to add loops.

Cheers

Essentially you're suggesting changing Modeler's selection model, that many have become accustomed to.

Essentially I'm talking about a toggle option in the settings,
You see people making a bunch of small scripts to accommodate drop selection (connect, merge) because they are not completely happy. And this suggestions is much less "destructive" than making a tool drop the selection.

Anyways I belive this would help in such cases, maybe I'm wrong. But this is definitely adding something and taking nothing, other than muscle memory.

Cheers
