How can I select an entire path in Figma when using box select isn’t possible?
I.E. - A shape/object has multiple independent overlapping shapes/objects. I want to select one of them to separate into it’s own shape. At the moment - I have to either manually click each point AND line on said object while holding shift. The lack of a proper lasso selection tool makes this much more cumbersome.
My Figma workflow has taken a huge hit from this for years- so I’m finally taking the time to figure it out but my searches haven’t turned up anything useful. I would love to know what I’m missing here!
To recreate this scenario:
- Duplicate any complex shape.
- Slightly offset the position of the duplicate.
- Flatten the two shapes.
- Separate them again
Step 4 takes me WAY more time than is reasonable with my current knowledge.
Thanks in advance, and I apologize if I’ve been missing something simple and/or obvious!
