I'm using version 2.79 of Blender and I can't edit my mesh to create an animation.
The Problem: I cannot edit my mesh when I create a new shape key (Key1). I can edit fine when I switch to the Basis key. When I try to scale the image in Key 1 a red line appears showing the axis I'm trying to scale but the vertices don't move.
The steps I took: Object mode > select object > create Basis shape key > create Key 1 > Edit mode > begin editing the object
I previously created an animation that worked so I'm pissed, extremely frustrated, and ready to jump off a bridge (smh, j/k of course). I've done too much work to start over. Please help.
