About the Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    There’s more to the CTRL-TAB popup menu: press 1, 2 or 3 to switch to vertex, edge or face select mode. Or press shift-1, shift-2 or shift-3 to independently toggle vertex, edge and face selection modes.

  2. Thanks for posting it, Bart! :) Some people is adding stuff and tricks in the comments, I'll do a next video showing them for those who don't know about these little tricks that make Blender even deeper :D
