Hi guys,

I'm fairly new to ZBrush, and I've run into a bit of a tough snag. I want to have the stitches in the image grouped as one polygroup so that I can delete them while keeping the piece they're on, but I'm not sure how to select them to do that as each is its own polygroup. Any tips?

    There are several ways:

    You can use 'merge similar groups' 
    You can switch to transpose, ctrl click the main red polygroup to mask it, invert mask, ctrl+w to polygroup masked
    You can ctrl+shift click main PG, ctrl+shift drag to invert hidden, ctr+w to PG masked

    Getting used to how the masking/hiding/polygrouping/transposing works are probably the most important techniques in getting faster in ZB. Polygroups are very powerful.

    Oh awesome, thanks! That helps so much!
    It really is a great system, but getting the hang of it is taking time. I suppose all good things do.
