Whenever I create adjustments to a mesh in edit mode (covering body with clothes for example), when I switch back into object mode the mesh distorts weirdly as shown below and shoots out in all directions at a random point in the mesh:

enter image description here

Why does this keep happening when I switch from edit to object mode and how can I stop/ revert it without deleting what I just edited (happened at least 4 times now)?

    $\begingroup$ It is unclear what you're asking exactly. What does "this" mean in your question? Can you explain what is happening in a more elaborate, objective way? $\endgroup$

Could it possibly be that I may have had the Ctrl + R cuts done too many times in too little a space? $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 16, 2017 at 8:17
  • $\begingroup$ This really sounds strange, and could have many reasons. In this case, consider uploading your blend file, so that someone can have a closer look at it. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It maybe that you have a Modifier(s) with Preview turned off in Edit Mode. $\endgroup$

I duplicated, Z-grabbed and separated a "shin-loop" from a Make Human, built it into a boot shape (I wanted to keep the vertex groups for weight painting). When I changed to object mode the mesh completely distorted.

Looking at the shape keys under Mesh I unticked the Relative check box - this seems to have worked.

I realise this is an old thread, but for others looking for an answer, like I was yesterday, i found there was a simple reason in my case.

I had let animation play for a few seconds to see how physics would would affect the character's clothing. If I switched into edit mode and then into any other mode without resetting the animation to frame 1, the clothing would deform into a crumpled mess around the shins.

Just remember to return to frame 1 before going into edit mode
