Quick Tip: Polygon Display Face Centers

By default you select faces in Maya with the whole face. I recommend changing this setting to “Center”. It makes it easier to select faces  in the orthographic views and makes faces without area visible.

To change the setting go to  Window > Setting & Preferences > Preferences, on the left choose “Selection”  and choose “Select Faces with: Center“.
