I have a script that creates an armature in the first run, and then finds it in the second run. When I try to add a bone to it in the second run, I get this error:
Armature 'Armature' not in edit mode, cannot add an editbone.
if armature_name in bpy.data.objects.keys(): armature = bpy.data.objects[armature_name] armature_data = armature.data print ('armature found') else: bpy.ops.object.armature_add(location = (0.0, 0.0, 0.0)) armature = bpy.context.object armature.name = armature_name armature_data = armature.data armature_created = True print ('armature created') #I was in object mode before bpy.ops.object.editmode_toggle() #Also tried bpy.ops.object.mode_set(mode='EDIT') #This crashes the second time bone = armature_data.edit_bones.new(bone_name)
What am I doing wrong? Why am I not in edit mode? It seems that I am in edit mode, but the armature thinks I'm not.
