Once I've created my curve, is it possible to move points other than one at a time? Anyway of doing a marquee selection?

Arg!!

I just found this in the help:

“You can only move individual points at the geometry level. At the object level you can move the entire curve.”

That sucks! Oh well.

The curve tool can't, but the edit tool can still be used to select multiple points and translate however.

- and then write script to create curve sop with coordinates of edited points if you need insert more points and repeat as needed
- the hope is however that at some point there will be new curve sop with python viewport state that allows all that, or if you feel adventurous you can technically write such python state yourself

The problem however is when you need to add a point to the curve in the Curve SOP you'll have to do the edit again, so you would want to avoid using the edit until you are sure you don't want to change you curve anymore.
Maybe we need an edit_curve SOP where we can add points?

Thanks for all the info.

It was just for a simple task so, I just moved them one at a time. I'll keep the edit sop in mind next time!
