Please read the notes inside the code as well.

Briefly, put Detach_Elements.ms into your scripts folder and run .mcr file once.
After that you'll find it into Tools category in your Costumize User Interface.

Cool

Hi Panayot
Cool stuff, just a little problem when pushing the Detach button on other object after Detach the fist one the script select the parts of older detached object, you can fix that by clean the arrays holding that nodes on end of the Detach button action.
Thank you.

hi antokhio

interesting... i try to imagine the point of your request. that w'd not change the result. if its something about the names then after detaching you may sort your elements by position and rename them.
