Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced selection tools, part of SketchUp 2013 Essential Training.
…Now when you're working with faces and edges, there are times when…you'll need to select a bunch of faces and edges at once.…You can do that as we did before by…holding down the Shift key and clicking on each…and every one of them, or by rubber band…selecting that part of the object that you want.…But there are other, more efficient ways of doing it, so…for example, if I were to select this edge, if I right-click…over it, you'll see I have a Select menu here, and this gives me three options.…
One is to select All Connected Faces.…Anything that's connected to that object, in other words this edge, or are…all on the same layer, and we'll get to layers in a bit.…Let's do connected faces, so any faces…that are connected to this will be selected.…So, if you, in fact, let's go into Shaded mode here.…So you can see that we've got this…face here's connected to this edge, and this face is, but none…of these are, so basically it just selects the two adjoining faces.…So if I were to select this one here.…
