This question already has an answer here:
I'm wondering if there is a setting I am missing or even if I need to re-install. I can't see what I am actually doing incorrectly. I cannot duplicate an object and individually select between them.
Specifically in seconds 20 - 28 of this video I can't accomplish. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bc-zPyV1kew
My steps are:
1) Make new file which opens default blender cube. 2) Click cube, shift D, drag new cube left. 3) Attempt to select original cube - I can't.
My aim is to duplicate an object I've created in another file I have, resize and edit that, and be able to separately edit both objects in that session - but I can't even dupe the default shape properly. Any direction appreciated.
