Summary0004618: Better edge selection for Part Sweep
DescriptionI've been working a lot with the Part Sweep of the Part Design WB recently and I've started to feel that adding edges of objects shouldn't be as cumbersome as it currently is.

For example is it not possible to preselect the wanted edges and THEN click the "Add Edge" button to add them, nor is it possible to just keep adding them because the button gets "released" after each edge added.
It might not sound like much, but I've had to redo the same Sweep a dozen times while working on my oddly shaped part shown below, because eventually something in the feature order went wrong and I had to delete and later redo the Sweep.

Edit: I also just remembered that the DEL key doesn't work for either the edges nor the profiles used in transition mode.
It's shown in the context menu, but pressing the key doesn't register.

On a sidenote: it would be also great if there would be a Compound Filter for just keeping the edges selected when creating it as a path.
