In 3ds Max, Command Panel > Modify > Editable Mesh/Editable Poly > Sub-object: Elements button, what is the alternative or addon inside blender?
elements selections is actually pretty handy in 3ds max. There is somewhat substitude in Blender —> in edit mode you hover over “element” you want to select and then press “L”. It is not as convenient but it gets the job done.
What I did is change my hotkeys to be more like Maya. Double left click - Select element. Alt double left click - Deselect element
