Hi, just got lighwave eight.. and learning some tut's, but the thing is, the dude in the tut is always using expand selection... anyone wanna help me by telling what the shorcut for expand selection is??? And one more thing, my symetri, doesn't work? I push shift+y and i push the button to, and it get's highlighted, but nothing happens on the other side when i try too move things around, only one side is affected

Symmetry only works if the center is on the x-axis. Using F2 will center the object for that. You must have an odd keyborad not to have the } key. In any event you can change the hotkeys.

Don't forget, you can go in and change the shortcut keys to anything you want. You can do this on a per project basis like your tutorial, or do it on an overall basis.

That may make it easier to follow along.

The '}' key is above the ']' key (which are the square bracket keys and are after the 'P' key) it's never referred to as Expand selection = Shift + '}' but Shift + ']' just as contract selection is referred to as Shift + '['

I figured out the keyboard thing... anywais, but my problem with the symetri thing is still going on... somepart of the model the symetri is working, but if you look at the lip

i tried to move the lip on a human head, but only one side was affected but the other side didn't even budge, and symetri is turned on, and i have centered the head
