Action schematic hotkey/s to move multiple selected nodes
on Jan 25, 2016 at 7:29:12 pm

Is there a particular hotkey combination to move a group of selected nodes in the Action schematic? Command-drag enables a rectangle selection, but I can't seem to move the selected group of nodes, only single nodes. I know that option-drag will move a parent and its children, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Response given on The Area's Smoke forum by Frédéric Warren, Flame & Smoke User Experience Designer, Autodesk Media & Entertainment:

It is not possible to move all selected nodes at once in the Action Schematic. The only thing yo can do is to move all the children underneath a node by holding down the ALT key while you move it.

I asked if there was a philosophical reason for this behavior, and he answered:

No. Batch used to behave that way as well. We were able to update the Batch workflow, but we never had time to update Action's. This is an improvement request already listed in our database.
