Select components by painting


You can select components such as vertices or faces by painting over the components with your graphics tablet pen.

  1. Select the object on which you want to select components.
  2. Select Edit > Paint Selection Tool > .
  3. Use the Tool Settings panel to set up the tool, including the brush size and choosing whether you are selecting, deselecting, or toggling components between selected and unselected.
  4. Set up the selection mask to select what types of components you want to select.
  5. Paint on the selected object to select components.

You can also use the Drag Select option to achieve a similar workflow but without a brush size. For more information on Drag Select, see Select multiple components.
