How to edit massive amounts of roads?

Post by Magasul » Sat May 09, 2020 4:54 am

Hey!

I am creating a city with a huge road network. How do I edit hundreds of roads after the fact? I've created small, medium and large road theme presets but if I modify it and overwright it doesn't change the roads and I don't want to manually click-click select all of them.

How do I create a preset and apply it to roads so that when I modify the preset, the roads it is applied to change aswell?

Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply. At the moment, changing a preset won't automatically change existing items that have that preset applied. We can look into an option for that for future versions.

Not sure if it would make it faster, but you can select all roads of a specific landmass or the canvas with the layers window and then deselect those you don't want to apply to with alt+click.

Well that is really tedious with hundreds of roads. :(
