For some reason when I add a plane it wont show up at all, any ideas? is there something I’m missing? i do space > add > mesh > plane. i can see its created because it shows its “selected” but its not showing up.
Can you show us a screenshot? Kind of difficult to tell without one. What version of Blender are you running? Some info might help.
Maybe it is created somewhere outside the view range? Tab out from the edit mode and try resetting the location with Alt-G.
2.47 is the version. Alt-G didn’t work.
Try centering the cursor with Shift-C and adding the plane. It looks like your cursor has jumped to the netherworlds.
