A script I wrote, which used to work (I think Blender 2.6), no longer seems to work. I think the select_inverse() operator has been removed?!

I made the mistake of removing the old version of Blender before installing 2.7, so I can't look back at old module.

Wow, go away for year and try to come back, everything is changed and old Blender forums are gone!

select_inverse() was available up to 2.61 (API docs), it's missing in docs from 2.62 on.

The following operator inverts the current object selection and should be equivalent:


You can get every past release here:

Blender.org forums were meant for developers, and the user community was mostly active on http://blenderartists.org/ anyway. Consider BA.org the successor to the official forums.

  • $\begingroup$ Next challenge is: bpy.data.meshes[].faces already answered in blender.stackexchange.com/questions/5932/… looking at Blender change logs I see "faces" mentioned in blender.org/api/blender_python_api_2_71_release/change_log.html but not select_inverse and did not see anything in /Extensions:2.6/Py/API_Changes wondering if there is a consolidated change log somewhere for all versions $\endgroup$ Dec 3, 2014 at 5:36
  • $\begingroup$ The mesh system changed in 2.63 to allow for Ngons and was auto-added to the change log. The API changes page is something I created and isn't really maintained by anyone. Chances are that neither of the resources point out API changes, such as the removal of an operator. You need to figure that out yourself and maybe subscribe to the developers mailing list. $\endgroup$
