When you're working into the Edit Mode, you can select vertices, edges, and faces. But did you know the shortcuts to quickly switch your selection mode? Did you know you can select all those element types at the same time?
- You can switch between vertices, edges and faces from the 3D View header.
- You can press Ctrl+Tab on the 3D View to open a popup to select faster.
- Click Shift while you hit other elements to select different elements at the same time.
