I need to select a polygon by its name (Polygon 123). I've been having an issue with baking in xnormal and have narrowed down the problem to that face. I've never had to get a polygon by its number so I don't have a clue how it's done in max

Thanks!

    Have the editable poly object selected while in poly subobject mode and type this into the listener at the bottom left and hit enter. Not sure if you can select a specific poly with the ui.
    $.EditablePoly.SetSelection #Face #{123}
