    if i split face for painting can we back it to its original?

    Hi , i was asking myself if i split face for purpose of painting it material then if i changed my mind and want to merge two faces and remain on other faces how this can be done ?
    also, if i want to make face back into its orginal state how this can be done too ?

    Just select the boundary lines of the split face and press delete. The original surface will return.

    There is not a way to "merge" split face boundaries.

      In 2012, take a look at using Parts for assigning different materials by Dividing the Parts within a compound wall,floor, roof,ceiling, etc.

      Split Face/Paint method is bad because it can get destroyed when edits are made.

          ...and it usually doesn't reflect the real world condition. Siding, soldier brick course, window header/sill, etc. are the items actually build/installed, not painted .

            Correct me if I'm wrong but once you starts using Parts there's no going back right? I mean if you select a Wall and turns Parts on you can't change the length of the all, as an example, without first deleting Parts. Is that right? If so then I question it's usefulness in a design office where they makes changes up to, through, and past CDs.
