    Moving  to points mode 
    needs a call to 
    c4d.CallCommand(12139)

    Q: if you want to do the same thing but with a key modifier - CTRL

    is there any 'easy' way to do this?

    ie go from a poly or edge selection - and convert that straight to a point selection?

    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly.
    But it sounds like you might want to use the convert tool with SMC.

    Here's an example that will select the edges around the selected polygons.
    The advantage to doing it this way- VS.- using the CallCommand() is you don't have to switch into edge mode first to select the edges.

    import c4d  
    from c4d import utils  
      
    def main() :  
          obj = doc.GetActiveObject()    
          bc = c4d.BaseContainer()  
          bc.SetData(c4d.MDATA_CONVERTSELECTION_LEFT, 2)        #ConvertSelection's Left "Polygons" option in memory  
          bc.SetData(c4d.MDATA_CONVERTSELECTION_RIGHT, 1)       #ConvertSelection's Right "Edges" option in memory  
          bc.SetData(c4d.MDATA_CONVERTSELECTION_TOLERANT, True) #Select the selection->ConvertSelection's "Tolerant" option in memory  
          utils.SendModelingCommand(c4d.MCOMMAND_CONVERTSELECTION, list = [obj], mode = c4d.MODIFY_ALL, bc=bc, doc = doc)      
      
    if __name__=='__main__':  
      main()

    Don't understand the 'right'  'left' thing Scott
    but I bet if I dig in the SDK it will become clear

    bottom line -  just trying to get from a poly selection..... straight to the equivalent point selection

    ie like  Tool change -  PLUS -  CNTRL KEY

    will give your code a spin later

    In R12: in the top menu go to->Selection->And select the Convert Selection Tool
    Or In R13: in the top menu go to->Select->And select the Convert Selection Tool

    The window that pops up has options on the left & right to convert the selected edges,polys,points to being selected in a different mode. Just like when you hold down the Ctrl key.

    That's what those right and left comments are referring to.

          utils.SendModelingCommand(c4d.MCOMMAND_CONVERTSELECTION, list = [obj], mode = c4d.MODIFY_ALL, bc=bc, doc = doc)

    Works here as expected. Where's the problem? What tells the console output?

    I'm quite new to python. At first I was perplexed when it didn't change to the mode as when I use the Convert selection Window. But I see now that i need an extra part in the script to do that. I those have shortcuts set up in COFFEE

    CallCommand(200000083); // Live Selection
    CallCommand(16351); // Edges

    How can I get this scripts to work in Python?
