Sub-object selection


I couldn´t be certain about this but with Sub-object selection checked shouldn´t draging a window from left to right select the sub-objects it covers? Right now I can only select individual objects by clicking but I would swear I could select sub-objects with window selection.

Please do correct me if I´m wrong,
Thank you

Window and crossing selections work as expected here with sub-object selection checked in the filter.

So this isn´t the expected behaviour?

Is there any hint at what might be causing this?

this is my systeminfo:

Hi @kral
Remember that it is not enough to turn on just sub-objects in the selection filter. You need to check mark which specific sub-objects (some or all of points/vertices, curves/edges, surfaces/faces); and remember that when you have the sub-object selection filter turned on, you don’t need to hold down ctrl+shift to select them.

Seem alright on this front. Anything else I could be doing wrong? I mean … you can always reinstall but that´s kind of annoying.

Strange indeed! You cold try to update that graphics card driver - it’s a bit old and the card is a bit underpowered. Could be that a Windows update as messed something up.
HTH, Jakob

Righty´o. I´ll try stuff and see if stuff works. Anyway thanks for the input :slight_smile: It´s good to know it´s a problem on my side so I can fix it.
