[Sidefx-houdini-list] H9 selection problem

Ah, I misunderstood  I thought you were doing this through the viewport 
not the network editor.

If you append a blast sop to your sphere, for example, pressing enter is 
not how you activate the node so that you can select things.  In this 
case you would press the ` (the back tick which is next to the 1 key) to 
activate the node, then select your faces, then press enter to confirm it.

If you are working in the viewport, you would first select your face, 
then either use your shelf tool, or your tab operator to do what you 
want, then press enter to confirm it.
