# Weight paint front and back faces at the same time

I want to know how to weight paint the back and front and sides of the selected region at once instead of keep changing the view then doing the same thing. So for example if we have a cube in front view and I pressed the B to select the bounding box, and I selected the area where the cube is located, what I want to be done is to select everything in this bounding box in all views, so in this case will be the whole cube. I have tried enabling and disabling the limit to selection option but still only the front faces are selected.

• you could go in to wireframe view to use the Border select tool. – David Sep 12 '14 at 15:46

• @user1460166 It's not working because you have faces selected in weight paint mode (the white lines), look in the header and untick a small box with red checkers on it and it should work. Or, if you do need this selection, hold Ctrl and select the entire area you want to paint front and back. – iKlsR Sep 12 '14 at 15:35
• @iKlsR thanks for your comment. I didn't understand what you meant by look in the header and untick a small box with red checkers on it . The main thing I want to do is to select all the faces (front,back and sides) when I use the b to select them. And then paint them. – Tak Sep 12 '14 at 15:45
