And, let's take a look at selections.…We all know, from our Standard layout,…that I can select 3D Polygons and,…select them and go and do, in the Select menu,…many things like, I can Outline Selections.…And I can do things like Loop Selections,…for edges and for polygons,…and for points, and so forth.…I can Select Connected, so I select everything…that's part of a continuous mesh.…
