Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

Dear Henrik, Your proposed way is the way that I would also go. At the moment there is no dedicated capability that exists in the toolkit for this. I note that if one had existed at the solid level (as the random surface point), it would provide a point only inside that solid - and not offer the ability to exclude points that are inside a daughter volume.
