006 - Shortest path Selection

Continuing with the selection tips in Edit Mode, this time you'll learn how to use a shortcut to select the shortest path between two elements.


  • Select one vertex (edges or faces also work).
  • Press Ctrl+RMB on another vertex.
  • Blender will select the edges that form a path from the first to the last selected ones.
  • This is extremely useful when selecting edges to mark seams for unwrapping.
