I am following the "Blender Inside Out" tutorial on blender cloud. Chapter 4 UV Wrapping - Learn the basics about UV Wrapping and how to set seams, shows how to select a vertex path between a start and end vertex. The video says pressing W should bring up a menu, which shows the option to Select vertex path. The tutorial uses blender 2.6, I have installed 2.7. I do not see this option in 2.7. Does anyone know how to access this option on 2.7?

Required path: enter image description here

Select shortest path result:

It's right there for me in 2.72:

For the squigglyness, try changing the length option in the redo panel (F6):

  • $\begingroup$ @user2859, I can use that option, but I am wondering why the option shown in the tutorial is not available in 2.7. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3, I added a couple of images. Using select shortest path results in a squiggly path. The required path shown in the tutorial is a straight path from the forehead to the nape. In the tutorial 'Select vetext path' creates this straight line and not a squiggly line. $\endgroup$
