Weight painting

for whatever reason, alt + left click is how I can select bones for weight painting. Ctrl + left click lessens the weight paint weight. Leaving this here in case anyone else runs into it. As far as I know I haven’t changed any default hotkeys.


If you are using Blender 4 and above those are the correct key bind:

  • Ctrl + Left click → reduces the weight
  • Left Click → add more weight.

Which makes it consistent with other tools like the sculpting tools (Ctrl does the opposite or removes)

It leaves us with using Alt + Left click for selecting bones
