Toggles soft selection on or off When on, restricts the falloff to a specific number of edges Controls the falloff distance and rate Affects subobjects that face away from the user in the active viewport Provides a graphic representation of the falloff Toggles a display mode in which the faces of the object are shaded to represent the soft selection Without soft selection, only the selected sub-objects are moved. Provides options for tools to paint the soft selection Soft selection allows the geometry surrounding the selection to deform smoothly when the selection is moved.
