How can I toggle between vertex, edge and face selection in Edit mode?
I'm using Emulate Numpad, and in this case 1, 2, 3 are assigned to change views (front, side, ...), so these keys don't work anymore to toggle between vertex/edge and face select mode.
So what I did is change the hotkeys assigned to vertex select mode, edge select mode and face select mode to Shift + 1, Shift + 2, Shift + 3.
Here's how to do it:
- go to Edit > Preferences > Keymap
- Go to the field next to Name enter Select Mode
- Now you should see under Mesh all the hotkeys for the different selection modes (for me, none of them works to toggle between vertex/edge/face select) I changed the first 3 to the keys that suit me, you can also choose different ones.
- To change the key, just click on the field on the right with the 1 for example, then it tells you to press the keys you would like to switch it to (I choose Shift + 1 which appears in the field as Shift + Numpad 1 but the key I press to go to Vertex select mode is Shift + 1, so probably that's also because I use Emulate Numpad.
