Selection in Pose Mode is very similar to the one in Edit Mode, with a few specificities:
You can only select whole bones in Pose Mode, not roots/tips…
Flip the selection from one side to another.
- Parent [, Child ]
You can deselect the active bone and select its immediate parent or one of its children.
- Extend Parent Shift-[, Extend Child Shift-]
Similar to Parent/Child but it keeps the active bone in the selection.
You can select bones based on their group and/or layer, through the Select Grouped pop-up menu Shift-G:
To select all bones belonging to the same layer(s) as the selected ones, use the In Same Layer entry Shift-G 1.
To select all bones belonging to the same group(s) as the selected ones, use the In Same Group entry Shift-G 2.
