I am trying to follow a tutorial to start building something using a cube but I can't even get past the first step, because even if I do exactly what they say, I don't end up with the same thing.

The steps I have followed

  1. Select cube, Ctrl + 1 to go to front view,
  2. Ctrl + Rto put a line down the middle, click, have line.
  3. Select all the vertices on that side, both used box select and then selected them all individually.

as you can see here i have half the cube selected!

I hit X, delete vertices, and I am left with this:

Not half of a box, just one plane, no matter what I do! how am I doing this wrong?

You only need to delete the 4 vertices on the side.

You'll be left with an open half of a cube.

Currently, You're deleting all selected vertices, which includes the 4 around the center. If you want to delete only half of the cube, either go into face selection mode and delete, or in vertex selection, delete only the far left. Hope this helps!
