Ugh, this is a really annoying problem. Shift+R is supposed to select a row, I’m doing the parachute tutorial here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob_to_Pro/Modeling_a_3D_Parachute_in_Blender
For some reason, no matter what I do I cannot get it to select a row, be it in line select mode or vertex select mode. I figure I’m doing something wrong.
