View Full Version : Annoying point/vertex/polygon selection switching

With the new modeler now we don't have a tab indicating when we switch from point/vertex/polygon. I know there's a lenghty text: Select and deselect XXXXX directly or with lasso. Please find a more simple and visual way to know . I simply can't remember what I'm selecting when the cursor is a cross or an X.

Thanks,

I used to think the same as the OP until I saw that they were moved to the column on the left, at the top. There are still indicators, just moved.

Nice! How dumb I am.

I needed to start a project ASAP and didn't have time to learn the interface before.

Perhaps better, but it also means that all the new tools are no longer placed in the menus.

What BeeVee said.

Now is not the time to be a Ludditte; the new interface IS better, even if it's 'just the same'.

Statistics panel opened does the trick. Personally the cursor is ok, sometimes a lapse between polygon and vertex, but the edge mode is quite distinguishable.
