in 2.31a where is pose mode. I have my figure rigged, now I need to pose him.
You must be outside the edit mode [You switch edit mode - object mode with TAB], then you can enter the pose mode with CTRL-TAB and select the elements you want to modify and scale [S] or rotate [R] them… I don’t think there’s anything different from other versions, exept perhaps very old ones [< 2.2x].
I hope this helps, but I’m noob with the armatures too…
Here’s a tute about armatures, on page 3 the pose mode is explained:
The Pose Mode button is no longer in the header. You can access it with Ctrl-Tab or through the Mode pulldown menu (it displays Object mode with the axis icon when in object mode).
