Default Frozen/Unfrozen

I loaded a file that seems to have objects grayed out and they are non selectable. Is there a way to unfreeze all objects in your scene?

Check your layers pallette at the lower-right of the Maya gui.

They sound like they are in "template" mode.

For more info regarding use of Layers, check out this FREE video:

Another method is to open Outliner, select the objects that are in Template mode, then untemplate them from Display > Object Display > Untemplate.

Default unfreeze polygon that's not in a layer.


I've made this model and i froze it and now i cant unfreeze it, the thing is that it's not in it's own layer but i have managed to put the a different polygon (hair) into it's own layer by accident by grouping it and so i was wondering if anyone could help me unfreeze the model and put it into its own layer?
