Setting Options for EntityGroup Selection

Use the EntityGroupDisplayMode command to control which EntityGrips are displayed for an EntityGroup selection.

You can edit all entities of the EntityGroups in a single operation using one EntityGrip, or you can edit individual entities within an EntityGroup using their EntityGrips.

To set options for EntityGroup selection:

  1. Type EntityGroupDisplayMode at the command prompt.
  2. Specify an option:
    • All entities. Displays all EntityGrips on all entities of the specified EntityGroup. You can modify each entity using its EntityGrips.
    • Bounding box. Displays only one central EntityGrip for the entire EntityGroup, and a bounding box.
    • Egroup. Displays only one central EntityGrip for the entire EntityGroup.


Command: EntityGroupDisplayMode
