I’m desperately in need of a convenient way to manually “paint-select” or “brush-select” limited areas of mesh faces, but I can’t find among the standard selection commands any way to do that.
One of the problems frustrating me is that SHIFT + mouse picking (individual mesh faces) unconditionally selects faces on the BACKside of the mesh instead of the frontmost faces. Drives me crazy (If I’m not nuts already before trying).
How has people out there solved this?
