Question Faces Problem

Hello!

I'm trying to delete 2 faces of an object and when I select and delete them, they continue to be there, the only thing that changes it's their blue "dot" - that disappears (and after that I can't select them anymore). How can I delete well?

Thank you,
Sepraud

I think your problem is that, the parts (faces) you circled around are not independent faces. or meaning, they are "not" a whole face.

the ones you circled are just part of a whole face. they are not 100% face therefore you wern't able to select what you wanted.

you should try cutting the whole face with the split polygon tool.
hope that was the problem.

Default similar problem

Hey, I am having a similar problem deleting faces. I also delete a face and the geometry in that area is still there, but the face dot locator is gone. It's driving me nuts, I am building an interior and cannot poke the proper holes for doors and windows.

However, I have been creating the faces using the split polygon tool. The walls are pretty much all extruded faces done with the split polygon tools, I just can''t delete those faces. I've tried deleting the history, I've tried using booleans to poke holes, both with no success. The face does not actually go away. Any other ideas at all, or possible help?
Thanks
Noah

Thank you for your replies, I rounded the problem by making the object in a different way.
