blender gives me strange functions....


usually when i try to spin a mesh, i just press spin in edit mode and it does it. Just now, however, i clicked spin and i got a cursor with a questionmark next to it. I then had to click the mesh to spin it. I then started with a blank sheet and it was back to normal again. No matter what i do, i cannot get it again in any other scene. Does anyone know what this is and how this happened?



The Question Mark will appear when you have more than one 3D window displayed. Blender is asking you which view to spin in. It also appears for the extrude repeat tool and some other modeling tools in this situation.

The screw tool too…


great… just the one thing i hadn’t tried yet.
