Zbrush - Selecting a single object within a polygroup of many objects
show user profile  Spear Chuck
How do I select one object within a polygroup? I have four spheres and would like to move them around one at a time. I though ALT>click works to select but in Edit or transform mode?

you could mask everything else off then move it
make them all seperate polygroups- tools> polygroups> auto
then you could split them into seperate subtools very easily too

I made visible the objects I want to separate into their own subtool. I autogrouped them (each having a different color), how do I separate them out into their own subtool?

Something about Split or Subtool Master?

I masked the objects (toes) I wanted to Split, hid/isolated them then Split Hidden which created a subtool of the objects (toes) I wanted to separated from the others (feet...).

I guess I have to repeat the process to get each one of the toe objects into its own subtool....which I did!

I merged everything back to one group with all objects having their own polygroup. Using ctrl>shift I was able to select individual objects and move them around. Here I was thinking in order to select and object I had to use alt>click.

Why don't you ever check youtube first? These questions are all answered there. Besides being quicker to get the answers, you also get them visually... that whole lead a horse to water parable and all.
