New Blender user here. I purchased the manual and am following the first tutorial, in which I make a cookie man and later animate him.
After building one side of the body, the tutorial asks me to mirror it, to get the other side visible. However the tutorial says “Press MKEY to open the Mirror Menu. Choose Global X.” However when I press the ‘m’ I get no such window axis menu appearing. I think I resolved this myself by pressing XKEY on the keyboard to signify I want the mirror on that access, that seemed to do the trick but I was wondering if I might need this Mirror Menu in the future, am I doing something wrong?
The second problem I have is a little further down in the tutorial when I come to smoothing the Cookie guy. Supposedly I need to locate the Sub Surf toggle in the Mesh Panel. Like the screen shot shows, in the Mesh Panel I have a few options, the top one being “Auto Smooth” but underneath, where the screen shot shows “Sub Surf” I have a button called “Retopo” instead, am I doing something wrong? I followed the tutorial to the letter.
