A basic extrusion is performed in the following way:
# Left mouse drag from a one block to another with the same Block Set to create a blue selection volume. This is where the blocks will be 'copied' from.
+
# Click and drag from a one block to another with the same Block Set to create a selection volume. A blue selection box will appear to show your selection.
# Optionally, left mouse drag a blue selection box face to modify the selection volume.
+
# Select and click one or more faces of the blue selection box. Doing so will turn that face green, indicating an extrusion can now be performed from that face.
# Right mouse drag a blue selection box face to create a green extrusion volume. This is where the blocks will be 'pasted' into. You can create extrusion volumes from multiple sides.
+
# Scroll up or down with the mouse wheel to lengthen or shorten the extrusion area from each selected face. The extrusion area will be indicated by a green box.
# Right click to confirm the extrusion. Blocks will be copied from the blue selection volume to the green extrusion volume(s).

Once you have the basics down, here are some ways you can vary the steps for different results:
  +
* An alternate way to create the selection is to first click and hold on one block until it is selected, release the mouse, then click and hold on another block with the other mouse button, and release. This creates a selection volume between the selected start and end blocks.
  +
* With a selection volume active, clicking and holing again on a different block will alter the volume's start or end position, depending on which mouse button you used.
   
With a selection volume active, and optionally one or more green extrusion volumes:

* With a selection volume active, and optionally one or more green extrusion volumes:
  +
* Left click a face on the selection volume to select it as a 'linked' face. When you change the selection or extrusion length of one side, any linked sides will also change.
 
 
* Pressing 'delete' or 'x' will destroy all blocks in all of the volumes.
* Target a block within the same Block Set and press Q and E to set the volume's start and end blocks respectively, altering the selection volume.
 
 
** Entering mouse mode and right clicking on a block in your hotbar or inventory will replace all blocks blocks in all volumes with the new block.
* Scroll the mouse wheel with active/linked faces to modify their extrusion lengths.
 
 
** Pressing tab to enter mouse mode will allow you to interact with the Extrusion control panel at the top of the screen, allowing you to change the behaviour of the extrusion.
* Hold alt while scrolling to modify their selection lengths instead.
 
  +
** Holding down alt while scrolling with the mouse wheel will alter the blue selection volume, rather than the green extrusion volume(s). This can allow you to extend the selection volume into empty space.
* Hold shift while scrolling to modify by 10 units at a time.
 
* Press 'delete' or 'x' to destroy all blocks in all of the volumes.
 
* Enter mouse mode and right click on a block in your hotbar or inventory to replace all blocks blocks in all volumes with the new block.
 
* Enter mouse mode (tab) to interact with the Extrusion control panel at the top of the screen, allowing you to change the behaviour of the extrusion.
