Chapter 3. Maya Interaction > Selecting Objects

Selecting Objects

Before you can change or delete a scene element, you need to be able to select it. As scenes become populated with many objects, it can get surprisingly difficult to select the items you want to focus on. Fortunately, Maya offers a variety of selection options.

Single Selections

A click of the mouse on an object selects it. If the object is displayed as a wireframe, you must click on a line. The wireframe changes color to indicate it's selected; by default, this color is green. If the object is displayed in Shaded mode, you can click anywhere on its surface to select it. The shaded object's wireframe is displayed to indicate when it's selected. Clicking anywhere that's not on a line (in Wireframe mode) or not on a surface or other scene element (in Shaded mode) deselects everything.
