3DS Max auto-selecting sub-divisions?
show user profile  herfst1
Oops, I apologize, I meant to say "sub-object" NOT "sub-division."

I wish I could post a video but I don't have the capturing software.

My problem is that when I try to select an edge (in edge mode) if I accidentally select a vert or the face it will switch to the corresponding sub-object. Likewise when I'm in any other mode. Oh, and border select is completely gone (won't work, just selects edge).

This is new to me, have I accidentally activated a button I shouldn't have?

I just reset 3DS and when I create a new object all is fine. But when I import->merge my old file the problem is back. Looks like I'll have to start again. Please let me know if my work doesn't have to be scrapped as I was liking it so far. And for the record it was a naked female - which I will post if someone saves it :)

Problem solved.

If this ever happens to you reset XForm.

For beginners: go to modifiers->XForm. Right click on it and select "collapse to." Done.

I depends.
If she has big boobs, post the file here so we can check it out.
Otherwise, you'll have to remodel her...

edit: darn, too slow!

Thanks anyway Garp. And just for you I'll enlarge her breasts to DD.
