Heyo, the blender noob has returned. This time, it appears my Fill tool has randomly decided to hate me. Whenever I select my verts then press the hotkey to Fill a space, I get this lovely error message:

enter image description here

I have the mirror mod on, but that's never been a problem before. This has never HAPPENED before. There's no doubles, and I DO have the correct amount of verts selected as well as the LoopTools ticked in my prefs. Not sure what's going on or what I might've pressed to screw this up. Help would be appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ actually works for me... do you tried reload blender file or reinstall? $\endgroup$ – yhoyo Dec 27 '16 at 19:48
  • $\begingroup$ This message could be the behaviour of the Alt+F tool, which fills with triangles. Are you sure you press F to fill ? $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Dec 27 '16 at 20:41
  • $\begingroup$ Very sure. Tried Alt+F too. Same thing. $\endgroup$ – The Grand God Sei Dec 28 '16 at 6:27
  • $\begingroup$ how many points are you trying to connect? is there a strange geometry between them? Can you upload an example of this failing? $\endgroup$ – g19fanatic Dec 28 '16 at 11:59

    $\begingroup$ Alt+F will give that error because there isn't any perimeter defined. What I wanted to know is do you really press F while filling and do you have any modifiers except for the Mirror. I can't repeat that behaviour with default Blender. Probably you should upload .blend to allow others to look into it. $\endgroup$ – Mr Zak Dec 28 '16 at 22:02

perhaps its the way the vertices are selected. Try CTRL+TAB edge select , select 2 opposite edges (the ones going vertical look like good candidates) FKEY also SPACE Grid Fill
