Using 8.5. Doing Cathedral ceiling tutorial in Help.

It tells me to use the Aligner tool, but it doesn't show up under Modify/Translate/More. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Nope, it's not your problem...8.5 doesn't put it there... you can find it under Utilities/ Additional... or you can use Edit Menu to put it back in...

Thanks! Any suggestions on how I can start learning LW? I'm a newb to this tool (thought I'm familiar with 3d concepts etc...)
