I am following along with the manual “Your first animation part I”. I got to the section “Eyes and Details” where I have some challenges following this instruction and I dont know how to make this work. Please help. Thanks
Here is the instruction.
Switch to Edit Mode (Tab). Select the crosshair pivot button (pivot: 3D Cursor)in the header of the 3D window (the 3D Transforms Manipulator jumps from the sphere to the cursor). All vertices of the eye should be selected (if not, press A to select all), now press ShiftD or use Duplicate in the Tool Shelf to duplicate and Esc to stop placing the copy with the mouse.
Press CtrlM to mirror, X to mirror around the X axis, followed by LMB or Enter to confirm the mirror. Return the pivot button to its default setting ( Median Point). The result can be seen in picture 6 of Creation of the eyes.
