Multires anyone use it for modeling?

Im trying to find out why multires won’t work in edit mode. I apply the multiRes modifier to the cube then subdivide it, switch to edit mode and its still only the default cube no subdivision levels to work with? I am using 2.57 is it only for sculpting at this stage ?

thanks for any help

use subdivision surface modifier for modeling, multires for sculpting

I Already do that but thought it would be good to have the option of extra levels to edit without having to apply the subsurface modifier and add to the vert count

i second this, its a quite usefull feature to be able to edit in diffrent states, i also works with sculpties and would like to see it back
