I'm trying to inset the two highlighted faces as one. I have already turned off individual and used scale in object mode as I saw recommended by others. However, I keep running into the same problem of the two faces insetting separately. Does anyone know how to fix this?
When you press I to
Inset Faces, you will notice that there are options shown at the top while you have not confirmed the Inset yet.
You can do the following in Inset mode:
- Toggle key O for Outset ON/OFF
- Toggle key B for Boundary ON/OFF
- Toggle key I for Individual ON/OFF
- Hold down Ctrl to adjust the depth
In the following gif see how the values toggle to ON or OFF for these actions:
In your case make sure Individual is set to OFF by pressing I until the value is OFF. If for some reason it doesn't work, then you definitely have an issue with your mesh as mentioned in the comments. So in Edit Mode, press A to select all vertices then M > Merge By Distance to make sure you have no overlapping geometry and then try again.
