In wings3d's tweak mode, you can select all 3 components at once, i would assume there is a way for maya to do this as well? i have a script that lets me move components as soon as i touch them a lot like wings3d except it dont snap to components, but if i could select all at once, that would be a big step. anyone know anywat to do this?

Not being all that familair with Wings ..why would you need to select all three components at once?
You can select and object and have it display the faces centers and vertices but not edges in Display>Polygons>etc

Hi G, well you want this to happen when modeling because it makes moving componets extremly fast. instead of switchign to a new component everytime i just select any and go. but i am starting to think this wont workin maya... unless anyone knows of anything.

Hmm.. I think your next best option would be to set of command key that toggles between the 3 selection modes.

technically you can select all three at once, yeah. but its a bit of a pain in the ass to do. I expect you could write a script to help you out, but to do it, select you first components - say faces.
then change the component type to verts (just say). now this de-selects your faces, but if you hit undo, it re-selects them, but keeps you in vert selection mode. now select your verts.
you can select as many different component types as you want this way.

hmm, it should be super easy actually.
if you look in your hotkey editor, you'll see that the f9 key has this command attached to it:
setSelectMode components Components; selectType -smp 1 -sme 0 -smf 0 -smu 0 -pv 1 -pe 0 -pf 0 -puv 0; select -cl;
so just copy that, but remove the "select -cl;" part. then do the same for the rest of the "f" keys.

well macaroni, if i did that would i be able to keep working on all 3 components at once? thats what im after.

not at once, you'd still have to change between components, but you wouldn't have to do the "undo" workaround.
