"Mesh" > "Extract" not working
Hello. Using Maya 8.5 on a Precision 690. 2Gigs of RAM. OS is Windows XP Pro.
OK. An example of what I am trying to do is I have a torso with an arm. I want to separate the arm, so I select the faces of the arm.
Now, when I have selected the faces of the arm and click Mesh --> Extract, the tool separates all the individual faces selected not only from the larger poly mesh of the torso, but also from each other.
The arm is in effect "shattered" in to the individual faces. The tool wasn't doing this before, but now I can't figure out how to get it to extract the mesh the way I want it to.
Thank you, Tristan
