I've seen the thread on doing a CTRL+SHIFT+Numpad+ in "https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/106493/expand-selection-ctrl-to-the-specified-direction-in-edit-mode" but i'm not sure if it's possible with the below scenario when you make a bisection and try to select one bisected area or only a portion of it with CTRL+Numpad+. My current workaround is to set the bisection line edges with Make Seam and then do L to select an area and then Clear Seam. But sometimes i want to gradually select only a few segments, not the entire bisected area. Is there a way to accomplish this?

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, you say "i want to gradually select only a few segments, not the entire bisected area", waht segments are you talking about and how Blender would be able to guess what segments you want? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ when u press numpad+ it will select the next faces in both directions along the loop's normal. so that works. we know there are only 2 directions it goes. since there are only 2 possible directions along the loop normal i was thinking maybe blender has some logic implemented where we could choose a direction with a certain shortcut key to go in one direction (+) and another shortcut key to go the other direction (-) or something. so i was curious to know if there was any secret trick. $\endgroup$
