Yes because I'm trying to use the H key and use the" Select parent" box but haven't find a way yet.
But this way is If I were parented by Select and Link tool. And I use the "Editable poly" properties to parent.

"And I use the "Editable poly" properties to parent."

Hu? Do you mean 'attach'?

My bad Garp ;).

I think a good solution would be the last-minute hostage said. Despite being restricted through use of the tool to "unlink".

Or try this, create a copy of the parent as a new object, after delete him.

I think you are mixing a lot of terms together here.

Go with Garp.
It sounds like you have attached 2 object together using the properties of the first objects "Attach" function.
If that is the case then this is what you should do:

Select your object and instead of selelcting vertice/edge/face you should select by object.
Now click on your child object and the entire child should be selected.
Now scroll dwn in the properties and find/click detach,

In the dialouge box select detach as a new object.
