I just picked up Blender 2.41 a few days ago and started working through the user guide (the one with Gus the gingerbread man). Right now, I’m stuck with two (noob-user) problems:
The eyes, mouth, buttons, etc are all UVspheres, but now that they are touching the body, I can’t select them individually. When I right-click on them, I can either move the whole guy - eyes and all, or in edit mode, I can select a vertex. Is there an easy way to select these spheres without having to select all the vertices in the sphere first?
When I try to change the material on any of the spheres (after selecting all the vertices in the sphere with the “B” multi-select), it changes the material of everything. What am I doing wrong?
