Just tonight when I opened Maya, I found that when I right-click-hold on objects, the pop-up where you choose Vertex, Face, Edge…etc. does not have those options floating at top. The long drop-down list is still there (where you choose Material Attributes, etc.), but for some reason those separate little rectangles you normally click to choose vertices, edges, faces are missing.
Has anyone got any idea why those things might suddenly disappear? I tried looking through all the settings and preferences but couldn’t see anything that appeared to have changed, so I’d appreciate any ideas on how to fix this so I can get back to work.
