Maya 2020 fundamentals - modelling the real world
Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Selecting Faces Problem

I have a problem when building a model, I cannot drag select a bunch of faces - lasso does not do it either. Check pic.
I have success when I create a new scene, create sphere and click drag on faces - I get the faces - the expected result.
But after I am modeling and I do delete history on the model, I try to drag select group of faces and get pictured bad result - I have to rotate the model and go from behind and select more faces?
I have made sure normals are facing out, as seen but no luck.
