Change one type of selection to another

When you have one type of component selected you can automatically select a corresponding component of a different type. For example, you can select a face and then use Select > Convert Selection > To Edges to select the edges around the face.

The Convert Selection type menu items do not change or convert the actual geometry. They only change which components are selected.

You can convert a selection to many different items using items from the Select > Convert Selection submenu. For more information, see the following in the Polygonal Modeling guide.
