Multi-component selection lets you select faces, vertices and edges without having to change between selection modes. In
this mode, you select components based on the mouse cursor’s proximity to them.
To turn on multi-component selection mode for a single object, do one of the following:
- -click when the cursor is over a polygon model and then select from the marking menu
To turn on multi-component selection mode for all objects, press the button on the status line and then -click the button and select from the menu.
Marquee select with multi-component selection mode
When you perform a marquee select on an object in multi-component selection mode and no components are initially selected,
Maya will select all vertices in the marquee.
If a component or multiple components of the same type are already selected, then Maya selects components of the same type
within the marquee.
If multiple components of different types are already selected, then Maya selects components based on a hierarchy of vertices,
edges, and then faces. For example, if an edge and a face are already selected and you perform a marquee select on the object,
Maya will select all edges in the marquee.
