I've imported an SVG and, unfortunately, Blender doesn't recognize the loops. This makes selection much harder—I have to select each edge individually rather than use loop selection.

Is there a way to mark a group of edges as a loop, so that I don't have to select each of the edges every time?

  • $\begingroup$ It's possible to save selection to vertex groups as is shown in the answer, though note that selecting edge loop with Alt+Left click works only if it is formed with quads. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak May 8 '18 at 19:39

You can add Vertex Groups.

enter image description here

You might also use Select Next Element to select the edges faster if they are in a loop. Just select the first 2 edges and then use the short code CTRL + SHIFT + +.

    $\begingroup$ Wouldn't that be (1) - (3) - (2) - "Assign"...?! $\endgroup$ – michaelh May 8 '18 at 19:39
  • $\begingroup$ That image comes from the blender doc, they specify the (1)-(2)-(3) there. See first link $\endgroup$ – S.Visser May 8 '18 at 19:40

    $\begingroup$ Plus should be pressed first (to add the group), then choose it to define which groups to add to. Or press Ctrl+G with vertices selected. The context in the manual is slightly different, they explain there that list is empty on (2), so it's not a step to do $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak May 8 '18 at 19:41
