Manage local edits

Discovering Local Edits

To see if local edits are applied to a specific selection, first activate the Local Edit tool . When making a selection, the Inspector now indicates if local edits are applied to the attributes of this selection using the following symbols:

* This attribute has been locally edited at the current selection level.
Local edits have been applied on a higher level than the current selection.
Local edits have been applied on a lower level than the current selection.

To see edits applied on higher levels, use PageUp and PageDown to change the selection level. Stepping all the way up will highlight all performed local edits in the Inspector with a sign.

Reset Local Edits

You can return to the default value of a specific attribute before you applied local edits. All local edits on the current and higher levels for this attribute will be removed.

  1. Click the drop-down menu next to the attribute value.

Reset Local Edits for Multiple Attributes

To revert multiple attributes at once you can use the context menu while in the local edits mode. Right-click the local selection or right-click in the Inspector to get the following options:
