Seleccionar

This page discusses specific selecting tools for surface objects in Edit Mode. The Surface Edit also uses the general select tools used which are described in the interface section.

Surface selection in Edit Mode is very similar to NURBS curve selection. The basic tools are the same as with meshes, so you can select a simple control point with an LMB-click, add to current selection with Shift-LMB clicks, Border Select, and so on.

Manú Seleccionar

The Select menu (in the 3D Viewport header) is even simpler than for curves…

All these options have the same meaning and behavior as in Object Mode and mesh Edit Mode.

Select ‣ Control Point Row

Atajo

Mayús-R

This option works a bit like edge loop selection for meshes, inasmuch it selects a whole row of control points, based on the active (the last selected) one. The first time you press Shift-R, the V row passing through (containing) the active point will be added to the current selection. If you use again this shortcut, you will toggle between the U and V row of this point, removing everything else from the selection.

Select More/Less

Modo Edición

Menú

Select ‣ More/Less

Atajo

Ctrl-NumpadPlus / Ctrl-NumpadMinus

Expand or contract the selection based on current selected control points.

More

For each selected control point, select all its linked points (i.e. two, three or four).

Less

For each selected control point, if all points linked to this point are selected, keep it selected. For all other selected control points, deselect them.

This implies two points:

  1. First, when all control points of a surface are selected, nothing will happen (as for Less, all linked points are always selected, and of course, More cannot add any). Conversely, the same goes when no control point is selected.

  2. Second, these tools will never «go outside» of a surface (they will never «jump» to another surface in the same object).
