Quote from: wallworm on October 27, 2018, 09:57:05 PMThanks for buying WW tools :)I will certainly add edge selection support in an update (can't promise an exact date).As for Undo, it has been a common request. Unfortunately, there is a limitation in the MAXScript implementation of access to Undo with some scripted functions for normal editing. I've added the standard code for this in the past and it simply doesn't work. I will try to pull some strings with the Max devs to add support for this but even if that happens I'm pretty certain they won't add it into Max 2015. If it ends up working, you'd probably only benefit in a future Max version. In any event, I will let you know when I have more information on this.

See the docs on Edit Normals Modifier. The Max dev team is aware of this limitation in many modifiers. You could always start an idea to ask for support for this on the Autodesk Ideas page to try and spur development in this regard.As for the Normal Tools rollout being in the editable poly. That is just because the Normal TOols rollout is a custom attribute. When Max collapses the stack it keeps the custom attributes. Luckily, it simply means that the Normal Tools will suddenly become available inside the modify tab of the object. So at that point, if you click a function, it will simply add an edit normal modifier and run the function.
