How to select the same face of a copied part with opPattern?

WaldPinklerWaldPinkler Member Posts: 25 EDU
A quick question, the user selects a face and I make a copy with opPattern of that whole body to manipulate. I want to select that same face on the new body.

How can I do this?

I tried qMatching, qAdjacent, etc. No luck.

    startTracking the selected face then after the copy, evaluate the tracking query to get the equivalent face.
