"B" Box Select does not work - help

Hello. I just downloaded the newest version of Blender 2.4 and when I use box select it only selects what can be view in my POV. It does not select the vertices behind it. Can you please help. Thank you


While in edit mode, you can toggle how the selection occurs by using the ‘limit selection to visible’ button (small cube icon) adjacent to the vertex, edge, face select mode buttons. By changing this you should be able to select parts of the object that are not visible in your view.

Hope this helps!

It worked!

You can also tap the ZKEY to put the mesh in wireframe mode where all points are visible and will be selected.
