This is my problem: Let’s assume a chain of bones; I unparent the last one in order to set a IK constraint; I select the last parented bone and try to add a IK constraint in the Object Constraints tab, but it fails, displaying the message “IK constraint can only be added to Bones”. However, when I set the constraint either by hitting alt+i or shift+ctrl+c, it does work – but the constraint doesn’t show up in the Object Constraints tab.
To add to the confusion, this happens most of the time but not always: sometimes it just works!
This process is new to me, so I might be overlooking something.
I’m using Blender 2.53 beta.
Please help? : (
