I'm trying to follow the tennis ball tutorial (serious newbie here) and the Drill tool under Construct/Combine has no apparent effect. I've started over from scratch, followed every instruction, and looked up the tool in the help file, but when I click 'ok' absolutely nothing happens.

** Edit:

Disregard. I should learn to pay closer attention to which viewport the tutorial guy is drawing in. Drilling an infinitely-thin object through the z-axis yields non-results. Argh. Gah.

However... does anyone know why using multishift does this:

... instead of smoothly shifting the entire green surface as one?

You need to open the numeric panel* with multishift active, and tick the 'group polygons' option.

*Press the 'n' key.
