connect the four curves that make up a nurbs square? impossible dude. It simply can't be done because nurbs geometry is always made up of four sides. sorry. You CAN however, choose Window>Outliner and locate your square there. If you select it, you will see that all four sides are highlighted. This is because they are grouped together. Will that suffice?

If you want a simple way to select the whole square, select 1 side then press the up arrow key to select all sides.

You can connect square curves together. Make sure you use the "connect" attach option instead of "blend" to maintain the shape.
