XForm not resetting.
show user profile
I have a character that I've been doing a lot of tweaking with (e.g. deleting verts and edges and reconnecting.). I've had to scale him up quite a bit, and it's posing some problems, and I went to reset the Xform and the option to rest selected is greyed out.

Any ideas?

Nope, it's its own thing.

I'm thinking that all my deleting and re-connecting, might have left open something that the reset Xform doesn't like, but I don't see anything weird.

Some possible workarounds :-

1. Try cloning the character, then try a reset on the clone.

2. Open a fresh scene and merge in the character.

3. Export out to some intermediate file format, then import back in.

create a box primitive, convert it to an e-poly, attach the object to it (not the box to the object) then delete the box at element level. Does the same as reset xform

xform in the utilities panel is the one to use- if you didn't use it already- dunno what the other one's for
