Right here I have two staircases that share the same materials.
I need one more of the same staircase, so I intend on selecting them by material and duplicating them. The only problem is that they share the same materials, so I would be selecting and duplicating both of them, which I don't want.
Is there a way I can "mask out" the other materials on the boat so that I can just use a box select without selecting any other materials? That way I can just box/circle select one of the stairways and not both.
The alternative is manually selecting every face of one of the stairways, which takes a very long time, and I'm sure there is a faster way to do it.
PS: If this masking doesn't exist, but there is another function that can also fix my problem, that would also be very much appreciated.
