I am a blithering newbie trying to follow the light saber tutorial in this thread: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=62611
I have a basic question that comes up. I deleted the cube, made a plane, deleted two vertices and subdivided. I renamed the new plane object (which is now a line) to “short” and also renamed its mesh to “short”. I haven’t added any materials yet but I forgot to delete the initial material.
Here is what I don’t get. When I am in object mode and on the editing panel looking at the “links and materials” there is an entry in the ME popup menu that says “O cube” if I select it my line turns back into a cube. I can’t see this cube mesh in the outliner view. How do I completely delete the cube? Is there a way i can see where it is in the file structure?
