    problem with stretch tool, modeler

    i'm following a tutorial (owl man) where the teacher use's the strech tool to flatten out 4 poly's, in the front view.

    when i tryed all i was able to do was move the seleted poy's around, as if i was using the move tool, they would not stretch at all.

    thanks for any help.

    i found it, my mode was set the the wrong thing.

    Most likely you need to first pick an action center mode. This is the mode that sets where the center of the action you are performing originates, such as rotate or stretch etc.

    The choices are: Mouse Center , Origin Center (0 at XYZ) Pivot Center - pivot point of the object set by the pivot tool, (View Tab) otherwise default is origin.

    There is a drop down mode at the bottom of modeler. I got rid of that and have buttons along the bottom so I know what mode I'm in at a glance.

    The shortcuts are

    Shift F5 Mouse/ F6 Origin/ F7 Pivot/ F8 Selection

    Set it to mouse center and holding down the ctl key you can hold the mouse over the area that needs to be straightened and drag - like he/she is in the video. That should work and after some expirimentation, you'll get it.

    Edit: Well there you go.
