Hi, this is my first post here. I’ve been learning blender for a week or two now…
I’ve been trying to figure out how to extrude something along a path for the last few days with no luck. I’ve tried several tutorials, and always get stuck in a simlar way.
Actually my question might be more basic than how to extrude along a path.
I’m getting confused about how to control edit mode and object mode, and which object I’m editing.
For instance, I start with a fresh blender, delete the initial cube, then add a bezier curve object. Then get to object mode and deselect all. Then add another bezier curve object. At this point, no matter what I try, I can’t seem to get back to editing the first bezier curve. I can go to object mode, and select the other one as an object, but when I hit tab, it goes back to editing the first object. And if I had also previously added some mesh, I can’t edit that anymore either, can’t selected it with ‘b’, etc.
So, I’m confused about how you are supposed to change which object edit-mode works on.
Previously, when I’d been messing around only with meshes, I didn’t seem to have this problem, or didn’t notice it anyway.
Thanks for any help. Hope the above makes sense.
I’m using blender 2.37a statically linked on x86 linux.
