Title: Knife Tool
Post by: kreator on February 28, 2008, 10:02:28 pm
Is it me or has anybody used the knife tool in 0.96 Beta.....it won`t work!  it works ok in 0.95 or has this already been reported as bug as its not in bug list.

Steve: are there any more betas to be released yet?

Knife tool works fine for me, as long as you're dealing with an Ungrouped Mesh.  It won't work on grouped objects, and it also won't work on primitives that haven't been converted to a mesh (Build > Convert to Mesh).

I'm in line with Rudy, it works fine for me.  Occasionally it crashes when I use "ctrl + knife tool" so that it only cuts across a selected face, but the knife tool itself works fine.

That seems very strange.
The usual things would include ungrouping the objects correct?
Perhaps you could send me the file, I'll see if I have any problems with it.

1) You can't use the knife tool or Parameteric shapes like a Sphere or a Cylinder.  Convert them to a Mesh first with the Build->ConvertToMesh command.

2) The cut tool crash has been fixed in the v0.97 preview.
