Create sub-selections from a set of currently selected objects.

This function allows you to select the top, middle, or bottom-most objects of the current selection, in terms of their position in the layer stack. You can specify a specific percentage or explicit number of objects to select.

When would someone use this?

Let’s say you have an illustration where there are a lot of individual raindrops or snowflakes scattered throughout the canvas. One thing you might want to do is to make the middle 50% of snowflakes a little brighter. You could use Randomill’s arrange layer order function to sort the snowflakes from top to bottom, and then use this function to select exactly the middle 50%.
