Metaball Select All function doesn't show (error)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When editing a metaball, in the header of the 3d-view, instead of showing a toggle select/deselect all in the select menu. There is just a grayed out error (or whatever you call it).

I was able to fix this fairly easily using this patch in blender/release/scripts/ui :

layout.separator()

- layout.operator("mball.select_deselect_all_metaelems")
+ layout.operator("mball.select_all").action = 'TOGGLE'
layout.operator("mball.select_inverse_metaelems")

layout.separator()

However maybe there is a better way to fix this (if so please let me know)

I attached the file, for convenience just in case.

This bug also causes a lot of other select options to not show.

And I was so exited I forgot my info:

Ubuntu Linux 32bit

Thanks, is a good fix. The old operator there wasn't even existing...
