Tips and Tricks

  • The Selection Configuration for the Element Swap feature is associated with the Other Quick Tools Selection Configuration. Modifying the Other Quick Tools Selection Configuration allows adding/removing of categories and conditions for the Element Swap selection's element filter.
  • The main use case of this tool is to "swap" elements within intersecting runs, to eliminate the crossing/clashing of two straight elements. However, this tool can swap the position of any two elements that are selected, whether part of a connected run or a single unconnected element.
