you may check out the knife tool as well! if you already got 1 vert in the middle of an edge (actually two connected edges with same direction) on one edge, and on the opposite site of a face the same, you can try the Vertex Connect command. It creates an edge from two selected verts and divides th...

In answer to my own questions...... I now realise the loops n cuts is far more efficient way to divide up and create new faces etc + you don't end up with a vast number of unneeded vertices. I am getting 4 x faster progress on my models without subdivide just because I don't have to go back and manu...

you don't have to change selection mode to vertices before deleting faces & edges, you can do that afterwards as well. Note that you won't see anything, no faces, edges or verts after deleting faces & edges - switch to vertex selection mode and the verts will show. That explains my apparent inconsi...

Noob Question - How do I delete all Except vertices

Sorry I am guessing this is a really easy option (I know I managed to do it by accident on my first day with blender). I want to create a simple 3d object (a re-modelled cube mesh), remove the edges and faces and leave the vertices behind. (I intend to remove some vertices and re-make faces manually).
