Get halfway through a model and find it's an unworkable mess? Can't add edge loops where you need them? Can't subdivide a mesh properly? If any of this sounds familiar check this course out.

Can't turn off UV texture mapping tool!!


I was playing around with UV Texture Mapping yesterday but have finished with it now and want to disable the tool!

Every time I select an edge, every intersection comes up with a yellow dot and the lines change colour to red/yellow/black. I believe the tool is to help identify which edges are connected in the UV texture editor...

When the tool appears [ie. everytime I try to edit an edge] it warps the whole polygon instead of just letting me resize a face. I assume this is in order to keep the UV mapping constant but I don't care any more I just want it off!

Thanks for your help

You've turned on soft selection.

This is the first issue addressed in the FAQ
