Highlighting Things  "Just wondering if there is a better way."

Hey I'm trying to work on some maps using TROR and I've come across some small issues.

You know how you have to highlight (in green) a single sector (by pressing Right Alt or the middle mouse button) at a time, then press Ctrl E to create a room over room. Well I'm trying to highlight in green a single sector by pressing Right Alt or the middle mouse button. But other sectors around and inside the sector I want to create a TROR effect on get in the way and highlighted too.

Well I have an idea or a question for the forums. You know how you can press Ctrl Tap and it'll highlight a single sector in red. Well is there a button I can hit to turn that red highlight into a green one so I could create the TROR effect that I'm looking for. If there isn't a button. Can we please get one on the next Mapster update. :)


PS : In this picture I'm trying to create see through water on the side of a beach. But I have other maps where the solution to my problem isn't as simple as morphing the sector.

If you haven't already tried it, pressing F3 in 2D mode and using ( in my case A and Z and mouse wheel ) you can move around for more precise control in dense areas. Then use your ALT for select as usual.

CTRL & ' & R-ALT

also reverse works
CTRL & ; & R-ALT (3 key combo) removes sector mouse is in from highlighted list...

so one can hold right alt and use mouse to highlight a lot, then 3 key combo remove unnecessary sectors from highlight.

Not a bad idea. It does help. Thank you.
