I can't find the Align tool, which flips all of the normals to face the same direction. In previous versions it was under the Detail tab, But now I can't even find it in the Menu Editor, unless it goes under a different name in there. Has it been replaced?

Well I changed my menus a lot, so I'm not sure where it is, but it's called "Align Polygons" and if you use Alt-F10 to configure the menus it's in Polygons on the left list.

In the menu editor its under POLYGONS > ALIGN POLYGONS (unassigned by default). I think this tool has been replaced by DETAIL > UNIFY NORMALS

Oh I see, I read about Align Polygons in the help file but that starts off talking about something else so I thought it was not the tool I was looking for. Thanks I'll just go with Unify now.

I can't find the Align tool,...........

1) To find anything, use the Search functions of the Menu Editor.*

2) "Align" seems to have been superseded as a tool, although it's still there. "Unify" seems to be the hot new thing all the cool kids are using.

*I do this so often it's embarrassing.

I used the search function. there are no results for an Align tool, only Align Polygons, Aligner, and in my case the PLG Align tool.

AFAIK, "Align Polygons" is the "Align Tool".

Yes, we just discussed that above.

Yeah those are good, I've used the second one before. I was really only concerned with flipping the normal direction though.
