  Some short Blender 3d how to items..  
     
  ----------  
     
  How to simply select vertices:       C   on the keyboard.  
     
  In the 3d view, change to:   Edit Mode  
     
  choose (from the icon next to the edit mode button) either:          
            vertex select   ...   edge select   ...   or   face select.  
     
   then (with the mouse placed within the 3d view) hit  C   on the keyboard.  
     
     
       To increase or decrease the area of selection: scroll the mouse wheel.  
     
       To deselect a vertex: hold down the shift key and left click on a vertex.  
     
       To exit the selection mode: Click the right mouse button.  
     
       Below is a view of selecting some vertices among a group of spheres:  
     
         
     
  ----------  
     
  How to create a separate collection of vertices:  
 

 

 
        After having selected a group of vertices, edges, or faces, hit:  
     
             mesh   >>   separate   >>   selection  
     
        This will create a new collection, in the Scene Collection.  
     
        To rename the new collection:  
     
              right click on the new collection, then  >>   ID Data   >>   Rename  
     
     
  ----------  
     
  How to delete selected vertices, edges, or faces:  
     
        After having made a selection of vertices to delete:  
     
              Mesh   >>   Delete   >>   Vertices  
  Or,  
              "X" on the keyboard  >>   Vertices  
     
        The same applies to edges and faces.  
     
  ----------  
     
  How to select a linked, continuous mesh of vertices, edges, or faces:  
     
        First, in edit mode, select a face (vertex, or edge):  
     
          
     
        then hit    "ctrl + L"  on the keyboard    to select the continous mesh:  
     
          
     
        The initial selection of a face, vertex, or edge,  
        will choose different connected surfaces.  
     
     
  ----------  
     
  How to set the toolbar's position:  
     
        click on the area between the toolbar icons:

        this can also allow it to be flipped back to the bottom:  
     
  ----------  
     
  How to show the normals for the faces:  
     
              We must be in edit mode.  
     
              Within the 3D viewport  >>   Overlays (icon near top)  >>    
                           Viewport Overlays  >>  Normals (near the bottom of the menu)  
                             >>  (then adjust the length of the normal's vector)  
     
          
     
  ----------  
     
  Subdivide  
     
  How to add vertices to an object and split up edges:  
     
        Select an object in edit mode, then select all of the vertices, edges,  
        to which we want to add new vertices. Then:  
     
              Right-click the mouse (anywhere in the viewport)  >>   (bring up the menu) >>    
                          >> select: Subdivide
