Is it possible to display the component ids (verts, faces etc) in the viewport like you can in Maya?
I think it might have been possible in the past using a hidden developers feature, but I can’t see it now.
scripting - Show mesh vertices ID - Blender Stack Exchange
Has this feature been abandoned or has it been moved into the general interface somewhere?
Activate/Enable Blender Preferences-> Interface ->Display: Developer Extras and Overlays: Indices (right in the middle).
Edit: as described for 2.8 in the link…
Sorry I must be being dim. This is what I’m seeing. Developer extras are on. But I can’t see those options in the overlay menu at all…
Ah, I see, you have to also be in edit mode for those options to appear! Got it, thanks!
