In Lightwave 8 when I select some points, and then press the "p" key for creating the polygon, the points stay selected. In former Lightwave versions, the points were deselected. Where can I change the Lightwave config to the old way (so that nothing is selected after I made a polygon)?

Thanks for you answer.

I think the Make Polygon has been replaced by David Ikeda's Make Poly tool (correct me on this though)

You can still use the old Make Polygon tool though.
Open up your Configure Keys window (ALT+F9), under the Command column search for Make Polygon in the Create catagory, click on it...
Now go the Key/Command column and search for p Make Poly, click it and then press the Assign button (it should be active now), when that is done, close the window and your done..whenever you hit p now to create a poly it will use the old Make Polygon plugin and thus deselect your points after making the poly.

Man, that thing gave me a headache. I haven't realized, that a different tool was used, ****. Anyway, thanks a lot for your quick response.
