    Filter and select faces, edges, and vertices on 3D objects.

    Cycle Through Multiple Subobjects

    In 3D views, some objects or subobjects (faces, edges, and vertices) might be hidden
    behind other geometry. You can press Ctrl+Spacebar to cycle through the hidden subobjects
    until the object you want to select is highlighted.

    For example, when you select faces on a 3D solid box, the face in the foreground is
    detected first. To cycle through the hidden faces, press Ctrl+Spacebar repeatedly.
    When the face you want to select is highlighted, continue to hold Ctrl and select
    the face.

    One way to find hidden subobjects is to turn on Selection Cycling list box on the
    Selection Cycling tab of the Draft Settings dialog box. You can then select a subobject
    by selecting it from a list.

    Turn on Subobject Selection Filters

    Selecting a specific type of subobject can be difficult on complex objects, such
    as meshes. You can limit the selection to a face, edge, vertex, or history subobject
    by setting a subobject selection filter.

    When a subobject selection filter is on, you do not need to press and hold Ctrl to
    select the face, edge, or vertex of a 3D model. However, you need to turn off the
    filter to select the entire object. The current subobject filter setting is stored
    in the SUBOBJSELECTIONMODE system variable.

    When a subobject filter is turned on, the following icons are displayed near the cursor:

    Icon Filter Keyboard Shortcut
      Vertex Shift + F2
      Edge Shift + F3
      Face Shift + F4
      History subobject Shift + F5
      None Shift + F1
