H i everyone , I was just struggling with selection speed in blender 2.93 it was too much frustrating , and i was wondering is this possible to increase the speed of selection? or is this possible to select heavy meshes faster in blender ?


and YES ! i found a solution and that is "alt shift z" , and even deselecting is affected by this and i guess this is a bug (and i don't have opportunity to report it if someone can) I hope someone find this helpful .

Just a simple update to better understood how it works , here is another test gif : enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ I am totally confused about what you needed and what you found in your answer, Alt shift Z disables overlays of your scene, how is it affecting selection? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @MikoCG I don't understand it either... well, he's talking about "heavy" meshes, so of course this might slow down the viewport and also slow down selecting mesh parts. I've experienced that as well but didn't have the impression that it was worse in 2.93 than in previous versions. And maybe disabling overlays might speed this up because Blender has less to display...? But I tried it and actually don't see any significant speed difference between 2.83.5 and 2.93.5, and disabling overlays doesn't help - it makes things worse, because now I can't see what I selected anymore. $\endgroup$ Dec 8 '21 at 10:19

    $\begingroup$ Sorry @hamed.design - if this works for you, that's fine. But I don't think this will really help anybody else. I've tried it now on a really heavy mesh and my viewport was very slow. Moving across the mesh with Circle select only selected a few parts of it. After disabling overlays, the viewport was still slow, and Circle select again only selected very few parts of it. And you can't see what is selected because there are no overlays so this is absolutely useless to make specific selections. $\endgroup$ Dec 8 '21 at 10:32
  • $\begingroup$ @MikoCG i was just figure this out (I tested it on that gif file) idk what are those down votes for ? i just thought this might be helpful for someone who use heavy meshes ( selecting a part of a mesh by pressing L and remove it) $\endgroup$ Dec 8 '21 at 10:44
  • $\begingroup$ @GordonBrinkmann maybe youre out of ram how much heavy your mesh is dude ? for me as it shown on that gif file it has a significant change , maybe you can't notice it , or youre trying to be offensive about someone sharing his experience , but give it another try it should work , also if you want to see what youre selecting just pre alt shift z back :) $\endgroup$ Dec 8 '21 at 10:49
