Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Translate Widget Error

I'm encountering a strange issue with the translate widget while working in edit mode to alter geometry. If I:

-Am in edit mode

-Have a face of a brush selected

-And am in the top orthographic view

Then the translate widget doesn't work: it will only move in the direction I'm pulling it a little before stopping (despite me continuing to pull) or will sometimes move the face in the opposite direction I'm pulling. As far as I can tell, this only affects the translate widget, and only when all three of those conditions are true. So I can get around it by moving vertices, or working in a different view, but it's just an odd thing I was compelled to point out.

This is occurring in 4.7.2. Anyone have an idea what the cause could be?

Hi Chroma Chris,

This is because after moving the mesh to a certain point, the vertices will attempt to invert triangles to compensate. BSP's do not allow triangle inversion because this can break the model. You are better off using extrusions with the extrude tool if the BSP is experiencing this issue.
