Select all tris in a mesh

Postby olippuner » Thu Jan 17, 2013 12:39 am

Hi

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?

thanks, ol

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
