OK, I see how you can select, verts, polys, and edges... but how do you select a whole object if it's on a layer with other objects? Let's say you have a bunch of objects overlapping and you just want to select a single object quickly...

thx...

If the objects are not merged together, you can select one poly and then (]-key) This will select all polys for the current object only. Same applies for points or edges.

Thanks!
That's just what I was looking for!!

While we're at it... is there a key that will grow or shrink a selection too?
Like in wings I can hit the + or - keys to expand/shrink my selection of elements for that specific object.

cheers!

Shift-[ and shift-] will contract and expand a selection.
