preselection will not occur.
Or if you enter view mode (Ctrl+Shift+Middle Mouse Button) the effect is the

I had a similar problem create mapkeys to create holes.
The programming in Wildfire was done to include the 'page' for items. That
means the identifier of an object includes which window it was recorded in.
So you may see something like PrehButton`0.0, where the .0 would be the

the mapkey will not run in the second window. This has been fixed for my
cases in Wildfire 2.0.
To get my mapkeys to work I included the operations for about 10 windows.
The lines of code in the mapkey repeated from .0 to .9. That actually

Has anyone creatd a mapkey to toggle Preselection Higlighting off/on?

off/on toggle). Can someone shed some light on the logic?
Thanks in advance,
