With the new ability to select multiple objects, whether using the shift key
or the control key, I would really really really love the ability to edit
the file name and/or the animation area at that point.

I frequently have created something in a basic texture and then decided that
the whole framework of the building might look better in something else. I
would love to select a whole area and change the walk001h.rwx to
walk028h.rwx. Viola, from walk to grass!

Also, there are times when I want to use something other than the basic
object textures. Would be great to edit the animation command box to change
all the objects I want to *create animate me astrotrf. 1 1 0* at one time
instead of having to copy paste the command onto each and every object.
Wow... from dead grass to one that now looks like I watered it!!

That is a very handy idea! As you can probably tell (or not tell ;-) from my
name, I build a lot in Active Worlds. I'm also constantly changing different
walks, walls, textures, etc., and it would be great to select like just a few
walks or even everything and change to the .rwx you want.

<g> yep.. had a feeling by your name that you build a lot.

Many times I have done a whole building.. like my phallic (can I say that in
here? <eg>) ok.. circular column like guest home. I did the whole thing in
one .rwx texture and decided that I really didn't like the final outcome.
I ended up going through piece by piece and changing the whole thing.

I think there could be many more usages for the multiple select other than
the current delete and move functions. Copy would be great as well. Of
course, I realize a lot of people wouldn't want anyone else to just copy and
move their hard work over to their own land, but the ability to copy one's
own work and to move it would be great.

I am currently working on twin towers in one location and quad towers in
another. I would love the ability to copy one tower and paste my own work
right next to it for the twin towers. As I have many ideas for the two
areas on which I am working, this would save me quite a bit of time and
toil. I could then go on much more quickly to adding the inner workings of
both buildings.

Zzzzzzzzzz
