The command Crtl+Numpad + makes the selection larger by adding loops to the selection.

The example of mesh:

I want to select 3 loops more. At the moment I do it with Circle Select tool via C but I want to do it faster.

Here is the desired selection:

  • $\begingroup$ Why don't you make a Vertex Group and add those verts to it so you can quickly select them again later without using any selection tools? $\endgroup$ – Mentalist Apr 19 '16 at 17:15

    $\begingroup$ Actually, [Crtl]+[Numpad +] is quite fast (and intuitive) to do... what would be your preferred command? As Mr Zak commented above, you can customize commands, the only problem being is: there are already so many command shortcuts... it's crowded. Also could pie menus be another way? $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Apr 20 '16 at 13:42

Just press ctrl and numpad + three times. :)

  • $\begingroup$ I don't have numpad. I have found other commands. Thank you anyway! $\endgroup$ – Meri Apr 21 '16 at 9:47
  • $\begingroup$ Okay, sorry. I didn't realize that in the title you asked how without a numpad. I was just thinking of the end of your question where you were wondering a fast way. I'm glad you got it. :) $\endgroup$ – Uncle Snail Apr 21 '16 at 19:47
