grouping faces for selection?

okay ive read about grouping and parenting, but they dont do what i want (as far as i can tell).

if i have a bunch of faces selected, how do i ‘group’ them so i can come back later and re-select them all at once instead of individually ?

i dont want to separate/split from the main object as i still want the vertices connected, but i couldnt find a method to do it like that. when i ctrl+g with all the selected faces and add them to a group, it makes a group… but when i deselect all and click the group in the outliner, nothing happens. is that part just for mats/tex then?


Vertex groups are still the way to go.

But go into Object Data properties not just to assign & remove selected vertices, but also to ‘select’ them

thanks ! thats it
