- Locking a vertex group from modification 2 answers
I have a large model -- I am going through it and selecting out faces in order to break a large, messy model into smaller sub-parts, so that painting it is hopefully easier
I've locked the position on the object level, but that doesn't seem to translate to the faces, apparently-- it just locks the overall object position. When I'm in edit mode, right-clicking away on faces, the faces still move around.
(My worry is that when I'm doing a lot of right-clicking to select faces, some small bit is going to get moved without me noticing, and I want to lock face positions for that reason.)
