I have a very basic question. I’m working my way through beginner tutorials for the Blender, and what I’m trying to do is join two separate objects to one another in the “Die” tutorial here: http://www.blendernation.com/tutorials/blender-3d-beginner-tutorial-a-die/
This is the point in the tutorial where you select the box and hemi-spheres and use “Ctrl-J” to join them.
The problem I’m having is that when I select all of the objects using ‘Shift-RMB’, they get selected, but then when I go to edit mode (via the tab key), only the last item selected is put in edit mode, i.e. only its vertices become visible and yellow. The others stay pink as if still in object mode.
Given this, there is no way for me to select particular verticies from more than one object at a time.
I had this same problem with the “Castle” tutorial, when putting the door into the castle, but thought I would work my way through a few more tutorials to see if I would finally figure it out, but, alas, I have not been able to.
Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong here?
