I know that I can select an edge loop in edit mode by pressing Alt and clicking on an edge.

But if I try to select multiple edge loops by holding down shift while selecting a second one, it does not work.

Why and what is the proper way to select multiple edge loops?


1 Answer 1


After selecting the first edge loop with AltLMB, just go on with ShiftAltLMB.

From the manual:

Holding Alt while selecting an edge selects a loop of edges that are connected in a line end-to-end, passing through the edge under the mouse pointer. Holding Shift-Alt while clicking adds to the current selection.

In versions pre 2.8 use AltRMB to select an entire egde loop.
