For a reason in my Blender 3.3.4 I don't have the Edit mode selection panel anymore when I switch to Edit mode (tab):

https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/2.80/_images/modeling_meshes_selecting_mode-buttons.png

I tried to read the doc here but I cannot understand where is the option to show it.

EDIT:

Here my interface in edit mode:

  • $\begingroup$ Of course you don't have it anymore... this manual screenshot you show is from version 2.80, the menu doesn't look like that anymore for quite a while now. $\endgroup$ Feb 16, 2023 at 11:38
  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots question edited, thanks $\endgroup$

This is a nurbs surface object, not a mesh object, you don't have edges or faces in these objects, you can only manipulate vertices. You can still convert it to mesh, just right click > Convert To > Mesh.

You are looking at the manual pages for Blender 2.8 and the image you're showing is for an even earlier version as far as I can remember. The selection icons for Blender 2.8 and above (including 3.3) are shown below.

enter image description here

And the icon for "Limit Selection to Visible" or also called X-Ray mode is here now:

x-ray toggle

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Gordon. For some reason the later versions of the manual don't appear to show that toolbar as far as I can see. Plenty of YT videos around explaining the layout though... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ In the manual for the current version you have the selection modes and x-ray explained here: Modeling > Meshes > Selecting > Introduction and the x-ray mode also here: Editors > 3D Viewport > Introduction $\endgroup$ Feb 16, 2023 at 12:09
  • $\begingroup$ Ok. I didn't have time to look that far through the manual. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The trick is to enter keywords in the manual's search ;) $\endgroup$ Feb 16, 2023 at 12:39
  • $\begingroup$ I usually get too many suggestions if I try that! :^) $\endgroup$
