Edge Edit Mode:
In the edge edit mode, the portion of the window that normally displays the scene hierarchy is used to display the edges of the shape being edited as a list. Items in the list can be selected with the mouse as for objects in the hierarchy window. (coppeliarobotics.com)
In this first installment of EDGE EDIT MODE, I made a provisional environment detailing edges and thought processes in installation and writing. I’d like to activate spaces wherein hierarchy between the edges of the shape being edited and the objects in the hierarchy are mutable.
