Once I add a bezier circle, there is no option to change the number of vertices anywhere. As you can see, the box at the bottom has no option to add vertices. If I click edit mode, the bottom box also disappears. I am a beginner in blender so a detailed reply will be helpful. Also, once the circle is added, I have pressed F6 (as suggested in other answers) but nothing happened.enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ You are right. If you add a bezier circle, there is no option to change the amount of vertices anywhere. What's your question? Do you want to add bezier points? Do you want a mesh circle with a specific amount of vertices? Try adding a mesh circle maybe. Also please ask a clear question in addition to stating and defining an issue. $\endgroup$ – Martynas Žiemys Jun 27 at 14:35

    $\begingroup$ @R-800 Regarding your edit, I think it's best not to correct 'circle' to 'bezier circle'. The user did not entirely realise they were adding a bezier circle, which was part of the issue. If other users have a similar issue and search for this question they may ignore it if they also didn't realise they were adding a curve ("This question doesn't relate to my problem, because I was adding a mesh"). $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Jun 27 at 16:27

You have added a curve circle, instead of a mesh circle. A curve circle does not have vertices, it has control points, but these cannot be adjusted when adding the object. A mesh circle will have the option to adjust the number of vertices.

Press Shift+A> Mesh> Circle to add a mesh circle. Then the Adjust Last Operation panel (the panel in the bottom left) will show the option to adjust the vertices.

  • $\begingroup$ This is my very first day in blender. I was learning a tutorial online and got stuck here. I kept adding curve circle instead of mesh circle and did not realize probably because I did not know there existed two concepts! However, your prompt reply helped me to move ahead with my learning (already spent 1.5hrs on this!). Thankyou!! $\endgroup$ – Fickle_Minded_Lunatic Jun 27 at 14:45
