I have downloaded a model from Blend-Swap, that I wanted to study, to try and learn from it. But as you can see in the screenshot, there is no Edit Mode. I selected a mesh in the outliner, but I noticed that it isn't outlined in the 3DView. Why would this happen?

  • $\begingroup$ Thats probably because that object is on another layer that is not selected, use right mouse button in 3D view to select the mesh you want to edit and then change to edit mode. $\endgroup$ – Denis Apr 12 '15 at 22:01
  • $\begingroup$ select the object labeled as rig $\endgroup$ – cegaton Apr 12 '15 at 22:08
  • $\begingroup$ Press "Reload Trusted" up at the top. Not sure if it's the culprit, but a good start. $\endgroup$ – Einar Apr 12 '15 at 22:11
  • $\begingroup$ thanks, it works if i select it in the 3dview :) But I can't find it in the outliner :/ How the rig works, is the next thing I learn... need to watch some tutorials :) Many thanks you two, Denis and cegaton :D $\endgroup$ – Stephanie Platz Apr 12 '15 at 22:11
  • $\begingroup$ @NaioaiStudios if i click "Reload trusted" I get back to the initial state, without an outliner and the other views. $\endgroup$ – Stephanie Platz Apr 12 '15 at 22:14
