I am working on a tutorial about low-poly modeling, but I am having difficulty in separating the bones and naming them individually. How do I do that?

Here is the tutorial I am currently working on, particularly the part I am having difficulty with...

There are many ways that work. Here's one that always works:

  • Select the armature
  • Enter Edit Mode or Pose Mode
  • Select an individual bone by left clicking on it.
  • Go to the Properties panel to the Bone properties tab and click the bone name. current name selected
  • Type in the new name.

The one he's using in the video:

  • Select the armature
  • Enter Edit Mode or Pose Mode
  • Select an individual bone by left clicking on it.
  • Type F2 (The key labeled F2 on the function row of your keyboard)changing the name with F2
  • Type in the new name.

  • $\begingroup$ sounds like you have a keyboard where the function keys are mapped to OS functionality. There's usually some shift-like key for enabling and disabling that but it varies by keyboard. Anyway, the first approach always works, no matter the OS or keyboard. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 20, 2021 at 1:22
