I’m having a hard time with weight paint and particle edit. I have the head all weight painted, and it looks nice, then I go into particle edit to comb it and it resets all of it. Do the two of them not work together or am I doing something wrong?
make sure you have the wieght group assigned to the particle effect. in the particle settings under vertex groups, assign it to density. otherwise post a blend file so we can look at your settings and see where the problem is
If you have set the vertex group for the hair density in the particle settings, this should still be visible in particle edit. Tested with 2.69 and it is like for me.
Supply more info and blend file
