Trying to dive in to Blender again and really struggling to understand some of the basic selection logic.
Specifically border selecting edges in Edit Mode.
When dragging out the marquee I've intersected 4 edges and completely encapsulated 1 edge.
In most programs this would result in 5 selected edges.
But here you can see only 1 edge is selected.
So you would think this meant that Border Select only selects edges when all their verts are completely surrounded by the selection border.
But here comes the twist!
Here you see only 1 vert is surrounded, yet the result is 3 selected edges!
This seems both inconsistent and counter-intuitive.
Is this the intended selection behavior for this tool? If so, why is this desirable? What's the advantage to this approach? I'm trying to understand the logic so using it isn't so frustrating.
Otherwise, is there another mode for Border Select that makes it behave more like you'd expect it to?
