in docu of 2.6 I find a hint, that it should be an advanced select option to select all tris (or all quads) in a mesh...
I need this to check, if there are any unexpected tris, though I could work them over into quads.
Just I can't find this in mesh edit mode, neither under SELECT-menue, nor anywhere else...
Where is that command?
Select a mesh object and go to edit mode
Clear selection if needed (Ctrl+A) - there will be an "Extend" option in next release which can be unchecked to clear existing selection
Go to menu Select > Select Faces by Sides
In T-panel, make sure it's set to 3 and Equal To

Hi CoDEmanX. that's good news - exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!
