lets do ver 3 at once

What should be there:
- ability to work on manually selected elements or polys or whatever
- would be great: (step 1) to set range of the IDs we will operate on
and after that (step 2) a range of IDs which will be reassigned to them
(with ability to set NOT only sequential IDs in both steps)
(step 3 here is performing the task)

Particular case looks this way: There is an object(tree) with multimat and several IDs already. I have to randomize IDs of elements(leaves) which have one common ID but leave untouched IDs of another elements.

works as advertised

works as advertised :)..
almost the thing I've been looking for, now I need a sequential matID instead of random.. and the number of elements to be the number of materials..

I have an object with all elements set to matID 1, so this saves me some clicking time but what if I I need to reimport the same object with only moved elements - I would like to just paste the material back to that.. - or at least have that random seed the same "random"..

- ideally, if there are identical elements in the mesh, (with same number of verts or whatever), it could name them the same matID - that would be fantastic, since the object I'm dealing with is a robot with symmetry..
..

a challenge for version 2 :) ?
sequential mat ids
identical elements to the same mat ID
