Temporary Nodes

A temporary node list retains nodes that are not attached to an element, protecting them from automatic removal by the database management.

Nodes are not protected from automatic removal for panels that automatically clear all temporary nodes, such as edges, faces, edit elements. There may be times when you wish to use an unattached node later in the modeling process.

The Temp Nodes panel allows you to modify the temporary node list. In the Temp Nodes panel, there are three functions:
Adds selected individual nodes to the temporary node list.
Removes selected individual nodes from the temporary node list.
clear all
Removes all the temporary nodes from the database.
