Sector tricks
 
First select a group of sectors by drawing a box around it in 2D mode with R.ALT+MOUSE
 

Example;

- 10 small rectangular sectors are created and then selected with group box.
- In 3D mode, while pointing at the ceiling, press F10.
- Enter a value of 16 and click Step Height button.

This will create a ceiling with steps of 16 units going up.
If it is needed to reset, simply enter a value of 0 and press Step Height again.
So a positive value is always up, a negative is down.

It is also possible to do the same with the Light Phase (if set) of multi sectors.

Ctrl+Del Delete all contents and exit
Ralt Exit

Ralt++/- More or Less visible
 
 
In 3D mode, all selected sectors can be sloped and shaded simultaniously
as well as changing the level of floors or ceilings (seperately).

In 2D mode, it is possible to load a map and paste the selection into it.
