ok, it is made clear to me that left->right / right->left selection is not a ‘thing’ in blender.So I would like to ask more experienced users how they would go about solving this problem:
I have a fractured model imported from another application: in the image I have a window section model which is supposed to be 8 pieces but each one of them is ‘broken’ into tenths more.
My intention is to select the pieces of each object and press ctrl+j to merge them.
the problem is that without right-> left selection, I have to select the pieces one by one because if I use rectangle selection all the neighboring parts will be selected as well…
e.g. the selected object in the image is a single glass pane that was ‘broken’ into 12 small pieces which I had to select one by one and I want to avoid doing the same thing for the rest of the objects.
