Find and replace a part in LDCad


Find and replace a part in LDCad
#1
Question 
Suppose I have installed a wrong part in a model, how can I find and replace it the fastest?

I know which part is wrong, but I know neither the step nor the submodel where it was installed.

A method that works (maybe there is an easier way):
- go to nested mode to be able to access into submodels
- add a part of the same type you want to find
- select -> same part
- select -> invert
- hide
- go to normal mode
- select the wrong part. The submodel containing it will be displayed in status bar. You may also use stepping menu -> selected to go to the step where this submodel was added.

Hi Philo

Works fine.
I only need the first three steps, and than replace the part(s) by selecting in the part libary.

Thanks Johann
