Before, we all have to select one edge at a time to create a flange in Autodesk Inventor. Now, we could create the flanges by selecting a loop. Of course, one benefit of this is that our sheet metal creation is faster.

Aside from the Flange, you could also do a loop select for your contour flange.

NOTE: You cannot make a loop select to a face that is circular in shape or is created out from a spline. If you try selecting a an area with one rounded edge and all the rest are lines, only the lines will be selected. Please refer to the image below.
