Wish 1. Activate the “Selection filter: Edges”, then double-click on a single edge. Rhino will select the entire loop of connected edges, which is very convenient.
However, if you activate “Selection filter: Faces” and double-click on a single edge, Rhino will not select the entire loop of connected faces. To do so, you have to use the “Select face loop” tool. Is not it more intuitive and user-friendly to allow selection of a face loop via double-clicking of an edge, without the need to use a separate selection tool for that purpose, just like the double-click does on edge loop selection?
To avoid confusion for Rhino, double-clicking on an edge could be deactivated IF the selection filter is set to allow selection of both, edges and faces. However, if only faces are selectable through the selection filter, then double-clicking on an edge should activate face loop, since edges can’t be selected in that mode anyway.
Wish 2. Add ability to convert the sub-object selection into another type of sub-object. For example, if two adjacent edges are selected, then the “Convert selection” tool should select all the faces that share the same edges. Same with points, too. This functionality is extremely useful in programs such like 3DS Max and I would love to see it in Rhino, too.
Toggle SubD edge/vertex selection works in a similar fashion, but has huge limitations. It will not select the connected faces and only toggles between points and edges. It will, however, select face(s) ONLY if all points around a surface are being selected. Could be done in a much better way by selecting the faces without the need to have all points around a face pre-selected. For example, selecting 1, 2 or 3 points around a regular 4-sided face will not select the face, no matter how many times I click on the “Toggle SubD edge/vertex selection” button. In 3Ds Max, even selecting one point is capable of converting the selection into selecting all adjacent faces.
