Drop Complex Status

Used to break up a complex element (cell, complex chain, complex shape, text node, surface, or solid) into its components. The components can then be manipulated individually.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Drawing > Home > Groups > Drop split button
  • Ribbon: Modeling > Home > Groups > Drop split button
  • Toolbox: Drop
Note: The Drop Complex Status tool cannot be used to disassociate a B-spline curve from its control polygon.
Tip: To quickly break up many complex elements, place a fence and use the Drop Complex Status of Fence Contents tool.
