How to hide all lines?

hide
lines

#1

Just for fun i’m making a model, however I cannot see anyway of selecting all lines to for example colour or hide.

to clarify if i make a cube, how would i made the lines on the edges the same colour as the faces or simply hide them all? without going through and clicking each idividual one (though i can’t even see where you can colour a line), which in this example would be 12 lines, 12x right click and hide is all i can see at the moment. Surely there must be an easeir way.

is there a plugin that adds “all connected lines” to the select options?

You don’t need any plugins for this.

Edit the style and untick the boxes for Edges and Profiles.

You can paint edges with colors or materials and edit the style to show edges by material, too.

If those solutions are not enough, you can use Thomthoms SelectionToys to reduce a selection to only the edges…

You can also do that by going View/Wireframe.

To add clarification / workflow to Box’s suggestion…

  1. View/Wireframe
  2. Select linework edges
  3. Return back to original View style
    —> The edges should be the only items selected
