I found the edge loop select very useful but is there a similar function for face loop selection?
If in face select mode Alt-RMB will select face loops instead of edge loops. If in vertice or edge select mode use Ctrl-Alt-RMB to select face loops.
I couldn’t remember at first so I quickly found these keyboard shortcuts listed in Blender’s Help menu > hotkey and mouse action reference > mouse.
thanks for the answer. Should make my work a lot easier.
Actually it is alt-RMB for all three now, and the selection is based on the mode.
