View Full Version : Select backfacing Verts?

03 March 2008, 10:49 PM
How can i select backfacing verts?I'm using the lasso select tool in wireframe but it only seems to select verts facing the view even though i've seen a video where the demonstration shows all verts selected by the lasso method.Is there a toggle switch i'm missing?

use the middle mouse button.

This is assuming you have the modo viewport input mapping set as default.

Middle mouse will select through

Left mouse "will paint select"
right mouse will lasso select verts you can see

System > Preferences > Remapping > Polygon Selection > Frontface & Backface

Tried all the options found there before i posted with no luck......

Cheers Csprance,MMB it was.I had been using RMB all along.

Is it possible to change the lasso selection to a bounding box?

RMB an empty part of the viewport and select Lasso Style.

Oh, yeah that middle mouse did it... But I don't used to do that. In wireframe and edge mode I just lasso select and it selected both front and back... I really would like that back. Can't seem the option in the preferences...

Any ideas?
