I've been trying to figure out a way to quickly select the edge loop / ring around an area I have just grid filled. If I 'alt + click' the edge ring it only partially selects. I appreciate the help.
- select an outer ring
- expand the selection towards the ring around the grid fill
- deselect all but the ring around the grid fill, using altshift and right click on the outer ring. In your example the above selection expansion will need then to deselect 2 outer rings, I guess.
