In the image you can see that I made the fingers and the arm.

I remember I used to select the points and was able to make bones linking the fingers to the end of the arm.

I can't remember what I did. I was looking in the manual but couldn't find it.

Just wanted to link the fingers to the wrist.

Thanks in advance.

hmm, if i understand your problem, what you can do is simply select points and weld them... other than that, if you want a bone between the fingers and the forearm, just select the forearm bone, active "skelegons" in create panel and drag a skelegon. it will be child of the forearm skelegon. then weld the points from your fingers to the wrist bone, you've just created.

there is also something simpler, it's orthopedic from : http://www.irrationalnumber.com

these are layout tools, but it's incredibly powerfull! you can very simply connect bones between them, adjust pivot, ect... all in the layout! you can find a demo verion(1 month) on there site!

i hope this could help you....

You could also skip all that and parent in place the finger to the wrist in Layout.
