I started using Blender yesterday after using Maya for 6 years. I'm in edit mode, stuck on some kind of lasso mode. I'm not sure how I even got into lasso mode. Previously it was in circle mode. This is only happening in Edit mode. In object mode I have a traditional marque square to select with. I would like to get this in Edit mode. Please can anyone tell me how to get rid of this lasso? Thank you. enter image description here

The hotkey W lets you swap between selection modes. Press W a few times until you get to your desired selection mode.

  • $\begingroup$ I tried the W, it didn't do anything. I feel like there are lot of bugs in Blender. But, I finally did figure it out. I was trying to right click. It never occurred to me I needed to left click to change it, lol. This is so different than Maya, lol. $\endgroup$

If you click and hold the lasso tool in edit mode, you will get a list of tools to select from:enter image description here

From there you can select "Select Box". You can also do this in object mode.
