I constructed a big plane via Polyrebuild tool that consists of various planes that are connected to one another.

Now I want to delete single faces in that constructions to have holes in my modeled plane but if I delete one face Blender is always deleting all the faces around the selected face as well.

It happens in other situations too, so it shouldn't be about the plane I created. Does anyone have a solution for that?

    $\begingroup$ X -> only faces should remove the face leaving everything else, you might have to clean up some loose verts and edges $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 10, 2021 at 14:25

It's important to know how selection (and deletion) behaves based on your selection mode

(this thing : Selection mode )

When choosing delete from the context menu (Right Click or W depending on your settings) the only offered deletion mode is the one corresponding to your selection mode, but pressing X opens up the complete menu.

Let's take this example:

Different results for deletion

With only one face selected (fig1), deletion will basically only depend on 3 modes, giving the results you can see above :

Delete Vertices (fig2), Delete Edges (fig3), and Delete Faces (fig4)
