# Statistics Panel

(Default Keyboard Shortcut: **W**)

Modeler's Statistics window is essential for good modeling. In the three modes - Points, Edges, Polygons - it shows a variety of vital information. In each category there is a + and a - at the left for selecting or deselecting items in that category. As an example it is possible to select all polygons belonging to a specific surface that are quads (four-point polygons), but not any with a Sketch Color of Magenta.

### Points Mode

- Total - The total number of points visible. This includes other foreground layers
- 0 Polygons - How many points are attached to no polygons
- 1/2/3/4 Polygons - How many points are attached to 1/2/3 and 4 polygons
- >4 Polygons - How many points are attached to more than four polygons
- (none) - This dropdown actually shows Selection Sets. A specific set can be chosen the list

### Edges Mode

- Total - The total number of edges visible. This includes other foreground layers
- 1 Polygons - The number of edges that are only attached to a single polygon
- 2 Polygons - The number of edges attached to two polygons (the most common case)
- >2 Polygons - Edges attached to more than two polygons, quite rare

### Polygon Mode

- Total - The total number of polygons visible. This includes other foreground layers
- Faces - Faces are normal polygons
- Curves - The number of curves visible
- Subpatches - Polygons converted to subdivision surfaces
- CC Patches - Polygons converted to Catmull-Clark patches
- Skelegons - The number of 2-point polygons converted to Modeler skelegons
- Metaballs - Single-point Polygons converted to metaballs
- 1 Vertex - Single vertex polygons
- 2 Vertices - Polygons with only two vertices. These and 1 point polys are important to have in the Statistics panel since almost always they should be removed
- 3 Vertices - Triangular polygons
- 4 Vertices - Polygons with four sides, also called quads
- >4 Vertices - Polygons with more than four sides (and hence points)
- Non-Planar - Polygons that are not flat within the Flatness Limit set in General Options
- Surf: (none) - This dropdown list presents all surfaces present in the visible geometry
- Part: (none) - This dropdown list presents any Parts that have been assigned to polygons
- Col: (none) - This dropdown list presents the different Sketch Colors assigned to polygons to enable choosing that way
