When two or more components are attached (snapped together) and selected, the snap points are visible. Snapped components automatically form a group. This means that if one component is moved, the other components in the group will move with it. Consequently, it means that if one component is removed, the other components in the group will be removed, too.
To move or remove only one component in the group, the component must be disconnected. This can be done in two ways, depending if you are in Group select mode or Single select mode:
Disconnect with snapping nodes
If you are in Group Select mode (2), use the yellow snap points (1) to disconnect an item from the group.
- Click on the component to select it and the highlight the snap points (1) will be visible.
- Click on either the yellow triangle in 2D, or the yellow cone in 3D to disconnect the component.
If the component is connected to multiple objects, every yellow triangle or cone must be disconnected so that it is completely independent.
- Now the individual object can be moved or deleted independently.
Disconnect in Single Select mode
Another simple way to disconnect an object from a group is to enter Single Select mode (2) and a single object will be outlined in purple. Now, simply move or remove the component.
