I’m doing this tutorial http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:Noob_to_Pro/2D_Image%28logo%29_to_a_3D_Model and i get up to the bit it says to close the polygon with the C key but in 2.61 the C key circle selects. can anyone tell me how to close the polygon in blender 2.61?
Ah, okay I see it now. You are working with the polygon curve segments. I found that to close the polygon ends, I have to select both and go to the tool shelf and set the spline type to ‘bezier’ for those, and then use ‘F’ to fill them with a segment. I don’t know why, but the spline type has to be set to bezier before it will close with F.
