      Hi! Is there any way to avoid clicking button 1, 2 and 3 to switch between vertex, edge and face? Intuitive would be to just click in the middle of a face edge or vertex, perhaps together with the middle mouse button?

      Hi. You can hold shift when selecting a mesh selection mode to enable multiple modes in Blender. This sounds a lot better than it really is though. A problem comes up when trying to perform loop selections and other tasks (even for default Blender selection methods). Edge and Face select enabled at the same time can be pretty handy, but still suffers from some of the same issues. Also Power Select has individual tweak settings for vert, edge, and face selection modes, so you have to make sure these settings are aligned if you have multiple mesh selection modes enabled in Blender. I have a video on my favorite hotkeys for mesh selection which may help: https://youtu.be/3kMksRQ6NVc

      Oh! Didn’t know you could do that! I understand the problem doing loop selections, but I really like it!

      That’s great. Power Lattice and Power Select updates are now available.

      Nice! Does the new Power Select support vertices?

      Hi. Not sure what you mean about does it support vertices? What do you mean?

      Ah! Sorry, wrong person! I was asking for this function erlier and got this:

      “Hi. That’s not yet an available feature. You can of course do this manually by creating a vertex group and then assigning it to the lattice modifier after adding it via Power Lattice, but coding this should definitely be a feature. I’ll work on adding this and let you know when an update is available.”

      It was from Bobafett :)

      Bobafett is just this guy I know who helps with testing around the site sometimes (when he’s not busy escaping Sarlaccs). I thought you were asking about vertex support in Power Select. This is my fault for not having dedicated forums to each addon (big updates to the forums coming). Regarding Power Lattice, yes indeed that feature has been added. You can check out some graphics on the product page here: https://blenderforums.org/downloads/power-lattice Thanks!

      Thanks, it works! Is there a way to make the lattice box adapt to just the selected vertices and not to the hole object?

      Hi. You’re welcome! I was thinking about adding this feature as an option but was a bit strapped for time. This is definitely an option I want to include in a future update though.

      By the way there are now official forums for these addons. Look a little strange when browsing through the main forums page right now (working on formatting). This one is located here: https://blenderforums.org/f/s/power-lattice/
