The Link Inheritance
(Selected) utility constrains the links between multiple objects
in a selection set for any axis of position, rotation, or scale.
This utility works exactly
the same as the
rollout in the Link Info group box in
except that it lets you adjust link inheritance for multiple objects
in a selection set, while the functions in the Hierarchy panel work
only on single objects.
To prevent the inheritance of X rotation
in a hierarchy:
- Select one or more objects, and then
turn off X in the Rotate group of the Inherit rollout.
Turn off any axis in
the Move, Rotate, or Scale groups to prevent inheritance.
When a box is turned
on, transform information from the parent is passed on to the selected
objects for the selected axis. When a box is turned off, transform
information on that axis is ignored by the selected objects.
