# This will connect a selection of verticies to a target vert. It will run throught the list of
# vertices and run poly split between the current vert in the list and the Target Vert. The last vertex selected
# will be the target vert. For a visual representation you can visit the modo_scripts section of my website.

#-UPDATES----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#
# --v1.2
# --Script now works if you have multiple mesh items/layers selected
# --Drops selection after just running poly.split if just two verts selected
# --v1.1
# --If only 2 verts just run poly split
# --Cleaned code
