Alt + Click not working
show user profile  garrystone
Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to max and having problems with selecting polygons as follows:
When in perspective view (view cube: front) i choose edit poly from the modifier list, click polygon and select some polygons on a box by dragging a rectangle. And then use Alt+click to deslect some polygons. However, this doesn't deselect the polygons on the back face of the box. Not only that, but when I drag over the polygons, it selects different polygons on the back face if I don't have the perspective view switched to front.

Hope someone can help, because its caused me to scratch my head a few times.

Gonna take a wild stab in the dark and guess it's backface cull / ignore backface.

Hope it helps.

Edit: You basically want Ignore Backfacing - Off and Backface Cull (on the object properties) to be turned off.

Thanks, I'll try that. I know object properties is actually set to 'by layer' at present. I tried some changes previous (but not 'backface Cull'). Anyway I'll give it a try when in work (tonight) and reply if it solves my problem.

Thanks again
