It is often not enough to place static items on the board, usually controls need to switch in context with a selection.

A Selector automatically sets all items within it to refer to the selected item.

In the above image, the layer geometry has been placed inside a Layer selector. Click on layer two would automatically show layer two’s geometry.

There are different types of selectors.

Adding a Selector to the Pinboard

  • Unlock the pin board by clicking the lock
  • Then expand Hippo net by clicking the Hippo Net Icon

The selectors are part of the the list of special Pin Items:

Layer Selector

Mix Selector

Viewport Selector

Host Selector

The default mix view has a good example of this.

The mixes page is actually a Mix selector with a layer selector nested inside.
