hair As you can see,I am in particle edit point mode. If I use select box tool on the left,I can left click drag my mouse creating a rectangle,when I leave my mouse,the points in the rectangle is selected. However,if there is many hair in the mesh,it will be very difficult to select one (or multi) particular complete hair in this way.

  • $\begingroup$ Hi there :) . In edit mode you can select one strand of hair as you call it by hovering your pointer over it and clicking L. Does that answer your question? $\endgroup$

To select an object in edit mode you can hover your pointer over the object you wanna select and press L which will select the entire object you want and ignore the other objects within the edit mode

  • $\begingroup$ Is it possible to have a box selection for complete hair or change selected points to complete hair? $\endgroup$ Jul 23, 2020 at 13:50
  • $\begingroup$ Hi! You can not 'click' a key on the keyboard. Also always consider adding a link to the manual and include the proper hotkey markup: <kbd>L</kbd> so we do not have to edit all of your posts, thanks. $\endgroup$
