Summary0003297: Part Design usability improvement for selection of Sweep Path
DescriptionWhen creating a sweep in PDN the selection and deselection of path elements is time consuming and tedious.
Selection: It is only possible to select one path segment at a time. It would be far more compfortable to use the common multi selection using the ctrl key.
The Path Workbench has an appropriate selection mechanism plus the comfortable possibility to select all segments of a path in a certain plane.

Deselection: Same as above, plus the fact, that if the path segments have to be repaired due to topo naming issues they have to be searched in the model.
It would be far easier if the elements in the list could be selected and deleted. Additional comfort would be provided if on selection of a list element the corresponding edge or sweep element could be highlighted.

Another point: it is possible to select edges of the existing solid as path elements. It would be nice to have an option to propagate the selection to edges tangent, like what is done with FIllet and Chamfer features.
